A selection of recent work by Berlin, Germany-based artist Andreas Wolf. Beginning each painting with a blank canvas and no preconceived concept or strategy, Wolf’s process is responsive—layering color and line until he strikes a balance between ambiguity and definition. He elaborates:
“The finished picture is a kind of chronicle of its own creation—an ongoing process which continues in the next painting, with the experience gained during the development of the previous one. The pictorial elements do not depict anything specific, but instead represent the concept of process. . . I try to set focal points or emphases, but these should never overpower the equilibrium of ambiguity. The painting is finished, if and when it resists an immediate comprehension, but offers at least one or a few different ways of perception or interpretation.”
