ARTIST'S STATEMENT
 

Art should take you to another place...should be timeless...the way it was, is, and will be. Color carries an emotional impact, eliciting feelings about reality. Sometimes my colors are inspired by what I see; sometimes color quickens my imagination. It binds together all the work I do. It declares its own reality.

 

I see the natural world in symbolic terms which express my relationship to art and to my own psyche. Art is a way of making sense out of the world and my place in it. Hopefully, my compositions bridge the eternity of nature and the individual self, no matter where the images may originate.

 

At the core of all art is a desire to seek out a path to an underlying truth. The format may vary, but the desire to find answers is always there. 
-C.C. Wolf

ABOUT THE ARTIST
 

A native of Queens, N.Y. and long-time Rhode Islander, C.C. Wolf studied at the Art Students' League and Hunter College in New York City before earning her B.F.A. ('69) from Rhode Island School of Design. She lived, taught and exhibited her work in Florence, Italy for three years before settling in New England in 1975.

 

Wolf explores new forms of expression in acrylic, watercolors, casein, gouache, pastels, liquid graphite and mixed media. Her focus is the impact of color that binds her work and creates a sense of mood and time all its own.

 

Her work is seen extensively throughout the region, including solo exhibitions and in galleries and collections including the RISD Museum, Beneficent Church, Merrill Lynch & Co., numerous Rhode Island Banks, Harvard Health, Hasbro Children's Hospital, and Tufts Children's Hospital in Boston. Her work has won numerous awards, honors and grants. She has also exhibited in Russia, Australia, Canada, Japan and China.

 

Wolf was a founding member of "19 on Paper," a Rhode Island-based group founded in 1986. She is president of East Side Arts Center, Providence, where she also teaches. For more than 20 years, she led the school's summer workshops on Block Island and in Italy.
