This work is one of a series of 7 pieces that focus each on an abstract or metaphysical concept. In this piece I focus on the struggle of light to overcome darkness. The canvas is stretched on a 2.75 deep stretcher. The sides are mostly unpainted.
Born and bred in New York City, Daniel Wolfe spent many childhood afternoons at the city's museums inspired by the symbolism of Paul Klee and the overpowering color and scale of Mark Rothko. Wolfe studied at the High School of Music and Art in Manhattan and later State University of New York, from which he graduated with a major in Studio Art in 1995. Wolfe also studied abroad in Jerusalem where he began a spiritual quest that infused his abstract expressionist style with mystical themes. He now lives and works in Brooklyn with his wife and 4 kids.
