"Charlie rehearsed the techniques in his mind..."
by sabine7 / October 11, 2005


"Charlie rehearsed the techniques in his mind over and over again, all the while not forgetting what it meant to be accepted into The Pearstem Carver's Union" is a large scale painting by A.A. Rucci that is wallpaper-like in its scope, what with the repetition of headless subjects scattered amongst the background trees. This type of work is unusual for Rucci who tends to place his tiny headless figures on expanses of monochromatic ground in order to encourage viewer intimacy in light of the lack of other distraction. The figures are not meant to be seen as ‘decapitated’ but unfinished, waiting for the viewer to personalize them.

Silvia could not resist Antonio's advances even though she knew his promises of eternal love and fidelity came from the black corner of his heart.

Francois, for example, had no relish for gothic ornaments.
