Artist Brad Kunkle recently shared a piece he painted that holds deep meaning for him, inspired by the 39 days it took for him to be reunited with his lost dog Shadow in 2015. Entitled The Golden Corridor and embellished with the New York-based artist’s practice of using of gold leaf, the diptych is steeped in symbolism¬†from circumstances surrounding the incident. The painting now hangs in the offices of FindShadow in Downtown Manhattan, an app Kunkle helped create when he realized technology could lead to a better way to find lost dogs (with already¬†400 successful reunions in NYC). Check out a time-lapse and more closeup shots below as well as head over here, if interested, to learn more about the piece.
