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
People wrapping themselves in comfort and luxury
People draped in soft plush
Fat silky scarves
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
