Charlie Absorbed & Alert
2000, oil on canvas, 36 x 30 inches
Detail of painting
When they are cleaning themselves, they seem oblivious to the rest of the world. But in an instant, the slightest disturbance will bring their focus back to the present.
I first did drawings of Charlie absorbed in cleaning himself and then being suddenly and rudely interrupted from his task. When I did the painting, I wanted to put both states into one piece to emphasize how they almost overlap in time.
