Devour shares a narrative with Human Shadow, as I depict the same individual at different stages in life. Devour is a physical representation of unpacking the shadow. The wolf has become physical and no longer merely a shadow. The conjoined deer sleeps while the starved wolf chews on its leg. The irregular body is a psychological portrait that disturbs the cultural 'norm.' As viewers approach the wolf side, it growls.
