|ATTORNEYS AND BANKERS, VULTURES 1988 12X24 (L/E OPEN)|
A large painting in every way, with a great deal of texture and, most of all, a great deal of frantic action, 'Attorneys
and Bankers' was painted just after a period of legal turmoil
in Coheleach's life.
"Africa is a tough place. Even the king of beasts has to worry
about the hyenas, and the hyenas worry about each other. The vultures want to get in on the action after the lions, but ahead of the hyenas and jackals because they can't fend them
off. And, they have to compete each other.
I grew up in a large family, and I got my hand slapped if I
reached for something ahead of somebody else, before it was
passed to me. I learned very quickly, since I sat next to my
father's right hand. Vultures do not have that problem; if they are to survive, they have to get as much food as they can, between the time the lion leaves and the other scavengers
The vulture's head and neck are very snakelike; devoid of hair
and feathers, they are easy to clean after a typically rowdy
and frenetic meal."
