Paintings by Jean Wolff
"The physical nature of water enters into my work through the process and in the visual imagery that is created. I work wet-on-wet."
Jean Wolff loves the water, and paints according to her affection, applying wet paint to a wet ground. As moisture builds and gravity weighs down on the canvas, the paint begins to disperse, moving across the surface in modulated sheets or waves of color.
Wolff creates surface tension and a countering structure using the cell-like form that has become her mark. Within the loosely constructed fields, structures emerge and dissolve.
