Julia J. Wolfe
Julia J. Wolfe is a painter and installation artist living and working in Iowa City, IA. Her work is a collection of brightly colored paintings, prints, drawings, found objects, made objects, and poems. She combines playful comedy and satire with a mishmash of weightier subjects. Picture this: “Calvin & Hobbes” meets “Parks and Recreation”, joined by “The Muppets” and Shel Silverstein, and sprinkled with snippets of talk shows that discuss current events and pop culture. The work provides laughter, optimism, and inward-looking thoughts and/or critique. It is playground-esque and humorously innocent, while simultaneously commenting on our culture of consumption. Please visit www.juliajwolfe.com to see her installation work and other projects.
