Statement:

The process of making a painting with the use of untraditional materials has always been the driving force in Wolfe’s work. In these most recent paintings he continues to use cotton drop cloths that you would find in any building supplies store and applies them to panels of wood. The porous quality and imperfections of a drop cloth is what draws Wolfe to this material. As each piece begins to evolve, cutting, patching, and scraping takes place. The final statement is realized when the interplay of lines and shapes create a tension between flatness and depth. Visual elements of Islamic Art, museum artifacts, and the quilts by the women of Gee’s Bend continue to be important sources for these paintings. To a varying degree, the imagery of these paintings combines the patchwork aspects of quilt making and the fragmentary nature of Greek and Roman museum displays with the fluid, interwoven nature of Islamic script.
