Pathfinder by Craig Kosak

Pathfinder by Craig Kosak

The graphic precision is balanced by the drips and splashes of paint. There are points of extreme control and at other points, the paint is allowed to display its natural attributes of liquid and color. The wolf and the raven are iconic; their symbolism becomes enhanced by the symbols at the bottom of the painting. It is a painting that talks of mysteries and secrets. Both animals are connected through an orange cloud that appears to trail the wolf. The wolf gazes into the void with intent. The wolf will be the first to claim the space ahead and the raven will follow. The wolf is indeed a pathfinder.
