"The Tear" is the most "of the moment" work that I have ever produced. It
was produced rather quickly, relative to my other works, and immediately
after the memorial services and funeral of my late dear friend, Charles M.
Schulz. Only the eyes and a tear are in focus to express the immense sorrow
that I had never before experienced in such great magnitude."
The original work was formed on two life-size wooden doors without door handles. The absence of handles, that usually operates a door, expresses our lack of control over the moment. Doors open and close, we enter and exit though them everyday, much like when we enter into a new period as another period ends.
More importantly, this work was created relative to the sadness of everyone who has lost someone of huge importance to his or her own lives. Hopefully through the face of this imaginary dog, who seems to experience many different lives, some sense of comfort and hope can be found as one period ends and another begins.
