Wolf Kohler Biography & Works
Wolf Kohler’s work weaves a compelling narrative, an interplay between different worlds across time that references the origins of storytelling and language itself. His process is a journey: a marriage of history, myth, language and the physical materials he uses. His explorations are, nevertheless, rooted in painting and drawing. He creates multiple layers in each work. He accepts pentimenti and he makes explicit revisions particularly in the use of crossed-out hand written text on the painted surface. Wolf began painting during the mid-1990’s and has a background in photography and cinematography. He has a keen interest in contemporary poetry which are present on his blog.
He currently resides in Guelph, Ontario.
