Look Around Once In A While
about the artist
Brigitte Wolf treasures a drawing created by her mother, which was her first and enduring inspiration of her work. Born into a large German family, Brigitte first travelled to England as a young woman, then immigrated to the USA, eventually settling in Chicago. Though always involved in the decorative arts, serious study was put aside until her family was grown. Since then, she has increasingly developed her skills in both sculpture and painting. She has thus far studied at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Noyes Center, Palette and Chisel and the Evanston Art Center, in each case her talent continues to mature. One finds in her work exploration of the human form, especially in dance and other movement, modulated by varying uses of light and color. While her painting may seem to render homage to postimpressionists such as Matisse and Cézanne—the former in certain of her human images, the latter in some of her still-life’s—she imbues her work with her own sense of dimension and illumination...and recently enjoys to shape her image of the abstract. Her works have begun to attract critical attention and can be found in Galleries and collected both here and in Europe.
