From the artist:
I wanted to capture the emotional connection and physical closeness that we all long for as human beings. This is considered as a primal need yet I feel it's lacking in our reserved English culture. I often use animals in my recent work as a vehicle to express our primal nature. I decided to paint two wolves to portary closeness and intimacy, as they are pack animals and freely display affection. We can easily lose this in our society which is overflowing with internet exchanges of emojis instead of real closeness.
