Brigitte Wolf has been working in stained glass for over 30 years. Her work is primarily flat glass, intended for private and public spaces, enhanced with sandblasting and glass painting.
Brigitte's work is rooted in an understanding of the past. She has studied traditional stained glass and knows that the transmission of light is the essential function. Her work probes the mysterious process by which light is transformed into ideas and emotions.
Color and light are the twin elements which enliven stained glass.
Line and form are the bones that give structure to color and light.
Always, in her work, there has been a desire to balance a traditional visual vocabulary with a modern sensibility, reflecting her belief in the universal nature of patterns. She believes they transcend time and place and, because they arise from nature itself, occur in many cultures. The more potent a symbol , the more universal it is and the less open to precise interpretation.
