Emily Wolfe, ‘Shade’, 2013, Page Blackie Gallery

About Emily Wolfe

In her quiet, mysterious depictions of domestic settings, New Zealand-born painter Emily Wolfe explores the subtle interplay of interior and exterior environments. Although born in Auckland, Wolfe relocated to London upon acceptance to graduate school, and has remained in the city ever since. Wolfe's paintings delicately inspect the generic, overlooked elements of interior settings, calling attention to details like wallpaper and chairs, or lace curtains that appear as a veil between indoor and outdoor worlds. Void of human figures, Wolfe's paintings create their language through silence, subtleties, and thoughtful glimpses of often disregarded realities, rendered in beautiful, photorealistic detail.

New Zealand, b. 1972, Auckland, New Zealand, based in London, United Kingdom
