The Wolf



The Wolf (100 cm wide x 120 cm high) - acrylic on canvas - 2020
A secret lies dormant in this painting - a powerful, passionate abstraction whose complexity reveals itself to the viewer only upon closer inspection. The wolf can be described as an animal that has fascinated man since the dawn of time. Howls of wolves are imitated by children joyfully. Wolf packs move with an elf-like grace through Canadian or Siberian primeval forests. Numerous fairy tales and myths entwine around this graceful animal, which can become a dangerous predator within seconds. "The Wolf" is Schwien's energetic, contrasting and complex homage to Isegrimm - one of the greatest animal hunters of our wonderful and diverse planet.
