An image of rage

‘[…]For even in those works where Dewes catches the wolf mouthing a piece of flesh,

a bodyless limb, she askes us to look at the wolf just for what it is, nothing less, nothing more. Perhaps that’s why the artist has repeatedly returned to the figure of the wolf in the first place, because it allows her to capture, to freeze the sight of the predator in a way that is pragmatic: ultimately these works facilitate a face-to-face encounter with and witnessing of what would, in humans, be rage itself. ‘ Eliel Jones
