Ann Wolff: The Early Drawings by Petra Giloy-Hirtz & Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsek
Out of stock
Born in Lübeck in 1937, the German-Swedish artist Ann Wolff achieved international fame for her sculptures which mainly use the material glass, but she has always drawn as well.
This volume presents a selection of sixty hitherto unpublished drawings from the 1980s. The works, executed in pencil on paper, focus on a female figure seen in reflections and duplications, sometimes surreal and whimsical in connection with animals and intermediate beings, and sometimes with a man or a child: dream worlds, pictures of the subconscious, often inspired by fairy tales. The pictures unfold their narrative potential as investigations of the female self in the social milieu of an age characterised by feminist movements and discussions regarding the relationship between the sexes.
