Exhibited: Screen Show, Vavasour Godkin 1998
Emily Wolfe\’\’s still life paintings often represent delicate,
sensitive responses to the world, invoking memories or thoughts of
moments in time. Wolfe\’\’s precise interpretations of the essence of
life through painting are represented in her elegantly refined work
on a screen: Untitled. Here in this Untitled Screen, the luscious
layers of paint form a skin over the support, creating a spatial
interplay in which broken shards of pottery sit on pictorial
shelves. The illusion of a deep cupboard space is formed, in which
the broken remnants remain, forgotten, or placed to reminisce about
good times shared. The essence of this work evokes things
forgotten, intricately recording what may normally be discarded.
The versatility of the screen offers a functional quality as it can
be experienced from multiple viewpoints; this is heightened through
Wolfe\’\’s clever use of the shelves as levels in the composition. The
screen is a device that appears often in contemporary practice.
Here Wolfe uses its physicality and vertical form to denote an
interior folding space. In placing the broken objects within a
painterly void, Wolfe draws on the optical illusionist painterly
technique of trompe-l\’\’œil, a baroque practice in which painters
attempt to form highly realistic-looking paintings on
two-dimensional surfaces. Wolfe in turn has created a kind of
parody in Untitled Screen making a two-dimensional painting look
three-dimensional on a three-dimensional surface. Though undated,
this work is likely to have been painted in 1998 and exhibited in
Screens at Vavasour Godkin Gallery in Auckland, the same year.
Wolfe departed for London in 1998, where she is still based, to
undertake a Master of Fine Art at the coveted Slade School of Fine
Art. She has developed her fine, whimsical interior studies to
broad acclaim internationally and continues to hold regular
exhibitions in New Zealand. JESSICA PEARLESS
