Island People

Island PeopleIsland People has an intentional child-like vigour and simplicity which belie its theme - a natural arcadia visited by the alien culture of art. Very nicely, it captures the sense of separateness often felt by visitors to an enclosed world. Two ruddy-skinned islanders with patched knees peer after the painter trudging through the landscape, the road he walks like an envelope of space separating him from the vibrant life around
