“Expressions of Empathy (Volume III) – Human Nature vs. the Nature of the Human” Oil on Canvas
This painting serves as the introductory piece to the third volume of Lord Toph’s “Expression of Empathy.” It exceeds all other paintings in this series in scale. The theme of “Hungry” is deliberate in subject matter as it is in title. The imagery is defined by two wolves on a breaking surface of ice. The wolves appear to be scaling across chunks of broker ice devoid of fear, while maintaining a stealthy conviction to attain their prey. A monochromatic color scheme of blue is utilized in order to indicate aggression, and a cold, remote climate. Bold un-blended strokes are used to create tension and rigidness, to illustrate a definitiveness in the wolves’ mission, and severity of climate. “Hungry” stand alone in this series, as animal nature being a correlation to that of human nature, and the instinctive absolution of each.
