EDEN PARK IN GLASTHULE
I honestly do not remember ever seeing this sculpture but as you can see I photographed it twelve years ago. I used a DP1 when I visited the Eden Park area and it is possible that I was unable to process the RAW images from the session.
A central theme of Joynt’s work is the celebration of family and humanity. In this sculpture the mother, with unrelenting strength, holds aloft the curled child. The simple curved forms and the balanced bulk of the figures gives the work a monumental, timeless and universal quality that is fitting for this residential location.
