Canis Lupis
Acrylic on Canvas
Margaret-Ann Clemente

"Canis Lupus, was created from my personal video footage of a captured wild alpha grey wolf currently living within its pack in the Gevaudan Reserve in southern France. The text in the background is a genetic code sequence belonging to the wolf species, as it appears in the National Center for Biotechnology Information. The painting is the first in a series that incorporates this information with the image of animals, by which I hope to broaden the message of equality of all sentient beings on this planet."
