A sly, delicious suggestion of evil.
wow .. you keep outdoing yourself... fabulous...love it!!!
There is a wonderful juxtaposition in this work; something playfully sinister. A mask may be aggressive or benign, an expressive conceit intended to obscure our true identity or reveal our true selves. Here, both the man and the wolf are watchful, predatory, their gazes unwavering, fixed on the same thing, but the wolf's fang betrays his/their true intentions. Visually, the line of color reinforces the contradiction. It seems like a line between sea and sky, an ocean from which either the wolf is surfacing, emerging out of the man, or conversely, the man is being submerged under the weight of the wolf's persona. There is much to think about here, and even more to digest.-Gerry
