The traditional poodle grooming style originated in their role as retrievers of large aquatic birds shot down by hunters. Whether Continental or English Saddle, this worker’s uniform turned into a character all of it’s own.
This character is surely perceived differently by both poodles and their human companions. It turns into a double-sided creature. All the creatures exist as points on a continuum, and none of them comprehends the other very well.
Bobbing around and blurring the lines, this wear reminds of an impressionistic stroke. Various realistic fractures may occur in this painting. We become strange animals to each other, part of various gatherings at once.
