About Dwayne Wolff

Painting and drawing are another way of keeping a diary.

But although my work is inspired by my life and times, my object is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of equal intensity.  In my art, I’m not trying to duplicate external forms, but get to the essence of things.

My interests in art are looking at reality and transforming it, through drawing and painting, into something else.  I practice a type of contemporary realism, but I don’t want my work to merely reflect reality.  The true value in art is creating something that cannot be explained.

In the end, art is not what I see,  but what I can make others see.  It is impossible for anyone to express anything essentially real by imitating its exterior surface.  I begin with an idea, and it becomes something else through the process of transferring to paper and canvas.

I am a painter and graphic artist.  I have a studio at the Old Firehouse Art Center in downtown Longmont Colorado.

  1. Saral transfer paper is something new to me. I. too, transfer my drawing to the canvas, but I’ve always just coated the back of the paper with charcoal, which also makes the canvas very dirty to work on. Can you find this transfer paper in art supply stores?

    This is a very interesting blog!
