From Michael Babcock: Susan was fond of portraying couples, particularly in the 1970s. The artists preferred myth, later in life, was Psyche & Eros. Susan once said she was “fairly romantic by nature” and one reason for the myth’s appeal was, she said, “it held a strong element of search and romance, of love triumphing over everything, and love making everything OK in the end.” She saw the myth as a story of the coming together of the feminine and the masculine. Later Susan came to see her work both as a snapshot of where she was in her life and also, “perhaps my own wish for myself, or my own looking into what I might like to become.” She said: “I’m sure that everything is related to whatever was going on in my life. Whether it’s couples or mother and children or . . . It’s all sort of connected there.” There’s a lovely use of ink providing texture particularly on the man’s garment.

TPG: Encircled by a stand of trees and under the beautifully detailed forest canopy, a couple shares their mutual promise. A pair of birds above and an elusive Unicorn, (a symbol of magic, purity, innocence and healing), hidden in the forest below, are present for this sacred moment.
