About Devy Wolff

Born and raised in Bucharest, Romania under a totalitarian regime after WWII, my only way to reach out for freedom in this system was through my self expression in the field of visual arts. Though restricted by the communist system in many ways, the universal culture that was still permitted became the only source of inspiration, hope, and a link with humanity. My 30 years of New York experience reflects the form and substance of my work that shaped and solidified my current style. The body of work is primarily large canvas paintings, drawings, digital art and 3d multimedia. Currently living in Tucson , Arizona."We have mechanical means of representing objects in nature, such as the camera and the photograph. The modern artist is expressing an inner world, expressing the energy, expressing the motion, and the inner forces. The modern artist is working with space and time, and expressing his feelings rather than illustrating." -Jackson Pollock
