Reinventing the View


Reinventing the View

Ashley Wolff at Brandon Artists Guild, August 31-November 5, 2018

“Reinventing the View” is a solo show of new work by artist and illustrator Ashley Wolff. Wolff has built a devoted following with her colorful watercolors, gouache paintings and children’s book illustrations. The vibrant, celebratory pieces she has selected for “Reinventing the View” stem from a more personal source.

“I chose the title, ‘Reinventing the View’, to mark being back in my home state of Vermont, but without either parent,” Wolff said. “After 34 years in California, I returned to live close to my mother. The lush bouquets of flowers painted in gouache are an outpouring of emotion following Mom’s death in May. She loved saturated color and anything purple.”

The other half of the show includes transparent watercolors. “It’s a medium I first learned and practiced with my father, who died 30 years ago,” says Ashley. “So it appears, without conscious planning, that I’m honoring both parents with work they would have loved if they could be here.”
