On Paper-Wolf

See it: Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, 10 W. Washington St.
Artist: Bekki Canine

One fan’s triumphant underdog is another fan’s crusher of dreams. Lessons in perception are evident in competition as well as in Bekki Canine’s painting On Paper- Wolf. “Here a curious wolf is encountering a paper wolf made up of actual pages of fairy tales,” Canine says. “Of course, in the fairy tales the wolf is the villain and described as a dangerous killer.” The flower in the foreground is aconitum or wolfsbane, a poisonous plant people have used to kill animals.
