"Evil Wolf" is my first painting created by partially burning the paper. The painting was inspired by one of my smaller paintings, Buffalo Wolf. The burning of the paper and purple highlights creates magical elements to this wolf. It appears large and hovers over the viewer seeming ready to hunt it's prey. However the wolf also simultaneously seems injured and almost disappearing into the white of the paper or the flames that it may have created itself. This work was created by exploring perceptions of evil being a super strength created from abuse.
