TIF WOLF | Breathe
The DVAA is pleased to showcase Tif Wolf with her first solo show. Based in Narrowsburg, NY, Tif Wolf is a self-taught artist who comes from three generations of multimedia artists—and yet never made visual art until spring 2019. Tif discovered painting abstracts as a form of meditation, without forcing an outcome. Even though the results are fluid forms, she only uses tools such as palette knives and scrapers, no brushes. She is inspired by creating a space for expansiveness within the self, and how skies can provide such a space, whether viewed in highly populated cities or Sullivan County.
“Although I am an abstract painter, some say my work looks like it draws on nature, such as an aerial, topographical view of a layered landscape with icy rivers and lakes, or it reminds them of the essence of clouds. I really enjoy when others see the paintings through their own eyes, not through mine, so I embrace all meanings and feelings.”
On Saturday, February 19, DVAA will be hosting a winter walkabout with renowned naturalist, Laura Chavez Silverman of The Outside Institute in conjunction with the exhibition “Breathe”. The 2-hour walk will conclude with a warm beverage reception and artist talk with Tif Wolf. The event is limited to 15 participants and free to attend but requires advanced registration.
