'Siren' presents a contortion of beauty that is seductive and yet claustrophobic in its excess.
At first glance a thing of beauty, the lasting response it elicits is pone of discomfort and oppression. This duality is indicative of the lure of ideals and dreams that appear desirable but in reality are contrived or deceptive and result in our repression and consummation.
