About the Piece:

Done for The Book of Night, Perseid Publishing, this particular piece was an illustration for the poem Vice Versa by Ambrose Bierce. The poem describes a woman who marries a soldier who was already dead in order to secure his pension. While in the poem he was only dead a mere nine hours, I thought of a great visual for a pair of skeletal hands, crossed in repose, with the wedding band still hanging around the finger.

Depending on how you want to look at it, it either talks about how even in death, you can't escape the "bonds" of marriage, or even in death the bonds of marriage still survives. Two sides of the same coin, eh?

The original is in the collection of Leigh Boros.


About the Artist:

Paul and his brother Michael opened Aradani Studios in 2002, selling both their artwork and costuming as they travelled all across the US. Paul’s medium of choice is charcoal, a passion he discovered in college. He loves the fluidity of it, the ease of moving it across the page with a simple gesture, and on the flipside, the challenge of it, such a simple gesture can also erase hours of painstaking detail. Paul’s work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare. He currently resides in Nashville, TN, where he, his brother, and sister continue to expand and build their elf ear empire.
