BIRD DREAM LOVERS reflects the pursuit of happiness through simple love but reminds us of the painful complexities it can bring through time.
The visual vocabulary provides simple clues to playful lovers in search of the Baetylus represented in the Emesa temple. But they can’t foresee the disrupted vase and withering shrub of deterioration.
However handsome bountiful beginnings are, with lush foliage representing adventures in different directions and exotic locations, the symbolic memorial to YVES ST LAURENT in the JARDIN MAJORELLE which he and his lifelong partner PIERRE BERGé cultivated, remind us of loss and remembrance.
