Alexander Wolff’s (b. 1976 Osterburg, Germany) paintings continually try to disintegrate the traditional process of painting, or invent new possibilities to engage with the dialogue between the canvas and the paint itself. Focusing on the primary conditions upon which picture-making depends, he tries to analyze the most basic circumstances that produce whatsoever form. He graduated from Akademie der Bildenden Küenste, Vienna, and received his MFA from the Städelschule Frankfurt am Main in 2002. Selected exhibitions include Portikus in Frankfurt, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Kunstverein Münster, Galerie / Verlag Bernd Slutzky in Frankfurt, Galerie mezzanin in Wien( Austria), and Kunstverein München.
Wolff is represented by Galerie Mezzanin in Vienna. He lives and works in Berlin and Los Angeles.
