Jens Wolf

Date of birth : 1967

Country : Germany

Born in Heilbronn, Germany.
Lives and works in Berlin.

Jens Wolf studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe under Helmut Dorner and Luc Tuymans.He belongs to the new German avant-garde trend that has rethought the history of abstract art. Modernist references and allusions—Bauhaus graphic Constructivism, Barnett Newman’s colour fields, Kenneth Noland’s lozenge-shaped canvasses, Frank Stella’s bands of paint, Joseph Albers’ optical effects—are scattered throughout an oeuvre that manipulates the forms and colours of Geometric Abstraction to bend the codes in an often ironic and tongue-in-cheek manner.
