Description Masters of the Universe (attempt no 19) looks at various ideas surrounding aspiration, failure, success, and the inevitable breakdown in trying to live up to an idealistic way of life. The work shifts uncomfortably between a high-flying attempt at greatness, and a contentment with a more sedate way of life. Or simply being happy with your lot. A darkly comic and melancholic edge runs throughout, but the work remains playful through its use of materials. The lo-fi nature of the work acts in two ways: as an indication that these are the simplest interpretations, yet it reflects a satisfyingly embarrassed view of the world.
