Life Before Death
1. - The Lover

mixed media assemblage in a display case
by Dale Copeland
approx. 60 x 50 x 20 cm
NZ $ 820
From the song The Pilgrim Chapter 33

Never knowin' if believin' is a blessing or a curse
All he ever gets is older and around
From the rockin' of the cradle
to the rollin' of the hearse.
The goin' up was worth the comin' down.
Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson

Here, the first in a planned series, is The Lover.
With scattered memories and creeping fears.
Living as fully as possible before it ends,
making the most of the going up, before the inevitable coming down.

Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
Surf Highway, Coastal Taranaki, New Zealand
