"A Passage Through" is a digitally imagined sculptural installation reflecting on the passage of time.
"Up near the roof all our thoughts are clear. In the attic it is a pleasure to see the bare rafters of the strong framework. Here we participate in the carpenter's solid geometry."
"But in the daydream itself, the recollection of moments of confined, simple, shut-in space are experiences of heartwarming space, of a space that does not seek to become extended, but would like above all still to be possessed. In the past, the attic may have seemed too small, it may have seemed cold in winter and hot in summer. Now, however, in memory recaptured through daydreams, it is hard to say through what syncretism the attic is at once small and large, warm and cool, always comforting."
- Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
Michael Wolf is a New York City area artist whose artwork encompasses sculpture, installation, and drawing. Architectural spaces and forms inspire Wolf's artwork. Using these forms as a metaphor for the human experience, his work explores the dichotomies of protection vs. vulnerability. Material integrity is an essential aspect of Wolf's artwork. He chooses the materials for each work carefully so that it speaks to the essence of the piece. The artist uses wood, stone, metal, and gold leaf while incorporating technologies such as 3D printing, creating contemporary art with an ongoing dialogue with history. Monica King Projects represent Michael Wolf.
