The motifs with which he plays often reccur- skeletons, swallows, crucifixes, childrens' story book illustrations, spiders, robins, trees, knives, flowers, cartoon figures- and are often contradictory, creating an uncomfortable and sometimes sinister paradox. Each motif has a meaning (swallows generally signify innocence for example), although the meanings can vary slightly from print to print depending on the overall ethos of the piece. Symbolism is key to Baldwin's oeuvre- both his own interpretation and the personal response of each viewer. These symbols of death, life and love reflect Baldwin's preoccupation with the 'big questions' of human existence.
