Traps and Transit
May 3 – June 2, 2018
First Thursday Opening, May 3, 5-8PM
Traver Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Traps and Transit, a solo exhibition of seven architectural sculptures by German born, Swedish-based artist, Ann Wolff.
Embedded with poetic sensibility, the luminous forms showcase Wolff’s most recent explorations in glass. The artist utilizes the staircase as a connotation of time, and the complex optics of cast crystal to create visually poetic musings on the vacillation of life: the coming, going and folding back on itself of time and our own unique perceptions of it. Staircases leading at once somewhere and nowhere at all, the pieces allude to both the futility and beauty of human endeavors.
Ann Wolff received her education at Hochschule für Gestaltung, Ulm, Germany. Her career is distinguished with numerous awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from Glass Art Society. Wolff’s work is housed in many private and public collections throughout the world. In 2017, she established the non-profit foundation, Ann Wolff Foundation Gotland, to promote art and culture and to focus on the material glass.
