The Fantasy Land – Works by David Wolle

27/5~5/8│Daily 10am to 7pm     Tap Seac Gallery     Free admission

Born in 1969 and a graduate of the Saint-Étienne School of Fine Arts, David Wolle makes small and unrecognisable plaster objects which are then enlarged and represented by the artist on canvas, vaguely bringing to mind objects that could belong to reality. There is an almost surrealistic form in this unlikely process.

David Wolle's works make it clear that a painting is not an object for recognising reality but rather for learning what unites us to it, and showing how the artist can trace a comprehensible symbol in regard to verbal thought. His oeuvre is frustrating in the sense that it makes us ask for more, and this sentiment is integral in the viewer’s response.
