The Grandmother of Europe: Ann Wolff
Parallel to her works in glass, she finds her way and time which shares the intense emotional images and her sculptural forms are "expressive, intimate, lyrical and heroic".
Ann Wolff’s work explores the woman’s role in the household and feminist theory. Her work is both powerful and exquisite; in color or clear transparency it is both abstract and representational. She adroitly manipulates a single line or a single color to portray a face, chest and body. Wolff often uses both the positive and negative mold within a single piece as a means to express inner turmoil. Air bubbles in high concentration represent lives about to burst forth from a mother’s expectant body.
