We find escape and comfort in the coddling of our senses.
"Cream" a visual metaphor for seductive excess/luxury/indulgence
People soaking in a warm cream, blissed out and oblivious
Eyes closed or half-closed
Unaware of their surroundings / each other
Viscous, thick slow current
Figures at various levels of immersion
Caricature of excess, figures swept up in sensual indulgence / escapism.
"Psychedelic circle of hell "
Ambiguous how we are meant to feel for the figures. Is this a desirable fate?
Where does this "cream" come from?
Greco-roman or baroque fountains
Shaped like idealized forms of the figures
Cream spilling out of rapturous faces / eyes / mouths
People wrapping themselves in comfort and luxury
People draped in soft plush
Fat silky scarves
