This skill is achieved through delicate cuts, masterful proportions, and an overall automaticité. So much so that muscle tone, posture and gestures are denoted throughout the piece.
This work's poignancy can be partly explained by its relative rawness; In this intriguingly ambiguous work, Charlie brilliantly fuses surface texture and form into this piece. He proves that texture need not be applied simply as decoration or as a "realistic detail". When applied wisely it can become an integral element of the form in itself. The result is an almost heraldic composition.
