Michael Wolfe is a painter, photographer and designer. He has been painting landscapes, taking pictures, designing books, magazines and corporate image for most of his adult life.
Michael Wolfe has had over 30 solo exhibitions and numerous group shows, been included in the 2019 Castlemaine State Festival with the exhibition ‘Shimmer’, the 2020 contemporary landscape survey show (Con)textural Landscapes at Bendigo Art Gallery, 2019 Ballarat International Photo Biennale open program and collaborated with renowned Australian author Alex Miller in the international collab project and exhibition Now&Them in Shanghai China.
“My work is both abstract and representative, classical and modern, formalist and expressionist. I’m looking to strip the landscape back to its bare bones then add flourishes of colour, texture and gesture.
Discarding the traditional foreground, middle ground and background of European landscape painting, I frequently dispense with the horizon line altogether. Flattening the picture plane, adopting an elevated or aerial viewpoint over a scrubby, irregular landscape without a focal point.
Although this aerial viewpoint may share some sensibilities with the paintings of Western Desert artists, they are also informed by cubism and other modernist traditions.”
His current exhibition, a collaboration with writer Kirsten Krauth and lyrics by Nick Cave, Someone To Watch Over Me – The Better Angels of Our Nature, is part of St Kilda Writer’s Week, Ballarat International Photo Biennale and International Poetry Day 2022.
Michael has exhibited widely in Australia and internationally and his work is included in public, corporate and private collections.
