Chaos Woods: The Wolf Man Is In The Parlor
The Wolf Man Is In The Parlor
Pyrography & acrylic on wood
17" x 17"
The Wolf Man is in the Parlor is a portrait of Lon Chaney as the Wolf Man from the 1941 classic horror film. His expression is a little mischievous rather than scary and oddly his shadow is casting a wolf or dog hand shadow on the wall, as a kind of parlor trick. The wall paper design is modeled after a pattern in the 100 year old home that Sarah grew up in.
Framed in a handmade Shou Sugi Ban and polyurethane treated wood frame.
Get to Know the Austin Artists:
Chaos Woods is a husband and wife artist team, Terry and Sarah Snow. In 2014, we started making unusual toys. Since then we’ve expanded into sculpture, turned vessels, pyrography wood burnings, and unique home furnishings.
We are highly collaborative, consulting each other throughout our creative process. The results are sometimes an interesting juxtaposition of masculine and feminine, frequently delicate and bold at the same time. We really enjoy sharing our ideas with each other and turning them into a reality. We especially enjoy making each other laugh and hope that our delight transcends each piece.
Terry is primarily the woodworker, shaping, cutting, turning and sanding. Sarah is the finisher, painting, staining and wood burning. All of our objects are made of wood.
