This 4 ft piece uses fragments of canvas adhered to wood and foam core and magnetic sheeting to create a multi-dimensional work which the owner can manipulate or "reconfigure" periodically. The backing is thin galvanized steel that is mounted on wood and surrounded by a 2" deep simple wood frame painted black.
A package of additional magnetic pieces created by the artist is supplied with the artwork to enable more possibilities.
This piece draws inspiration from the colorful yet crowded urban landscape of Brooklyn, New York. I focus on the way that light permeates and shapes our urban world.
Ghetto Light is a large, impressive piece intended to transform spaces and invite visitors' curiosity and interaction.

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.
