In this work I use fragments of heavy watercolor paper adhered to foam core and magnetic sheeting to create a multi-dimensional work which the owner can manipulate. The fragments are magnetically adhered to a piece of thin galvanized steel that is mounted on wood and surrounded by a 1.5" deep simple wood frame. This series draws inspiration from the colorful yet crowded urban landscape of Brooklyn, New York.
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.
