About the Piece:
Done as a commision for a close friend, the piece brings together two popular images in American culture, a wolf and the Yin Yang symbol. The title is Chinese. Concisely it translates to "Night Wolf", though the definition of yin means much more than simply night. It also incorporates the dark, feminine, earthly half of the ancient symbol.
The original is the private collection of Morgan Jones.
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work has won numerous awards around the country, including the prestigious Chesley Award in 2006, for Best Monochrome Unpublished for his piece Nightmare.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.
