Transformations: the art of Philip Wolfhagen is an exhibition of some of the artist’s rarely seen works. From 1989 to the present, it focuses on major works commissioned or undertaken for specific sites and themed exhibitions in public museums and art galleries.
These special projects have called upon the artist to respond to places and concepts beyond his studio practice. There are recurrent motifs, such as the serial image or multi-panelled compositional device used to convey the passage of time, and the use of atmospheric phenomena to express his concerns about the fragility of the natural world.
There is a free artist floor talk with Philip Wolfhagen on Saturday 12 November, 11:00 am at the gallery.
