Watch With Mother
Painting - Oil On Canvas
link to this image - http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/paintings/watch-with-mother-189496
my name is charles stuart and this is one of five paintings that you have in the collection.
watch with mother was painted oil on canvas 8ft wide 5 feet high in 1983/4 when i was artist in residence at nottingham general hospital before the hospital was closed and moved to QMC. my studio was a circular victorian ward which allowed me to paint large oil canvases. i was there from 1983 to 1986 and completed 27 or so large oils in that time. this one started off as a small sketch in my note book with a mickey type mouse looking through the window into the room where rupert the bear was nailed to his airplane. the 'toby twirl annual' characters were not in the original sketch but were essential to the large oil painting.
You may be able to see the 'ghost' of 9/11in this image although painted 19 years earlier than the twin towers attack i think that it is now eerily prescient of the 9/11 terrorist events.
the scene through the window is of an idealised landscape as in poussin/claude lorrain/ heaven etc... only it is dissolving and chaotic... interesting ?
