DeBlois Gallery

A review excerpted from "Three's a Charm" in Newport's "Mercury" newspaper.
by Jess Braley

   Although they all are heavily influenced by memory and past experiences, the trio of women exhibiting work in DeBlois Gallery's April show couldn't be more different. Jill McLaughlin, Shari Weschler Rubeck and C.C. Wolf separate themselves from each other in media, methods and interpretation, if not inspiration.

   Wolf's work is a series of 16 brilliantly colorful and varyingly abstracted landscapes. She finds inspiration in the world around her, as do the others, but symbolism weighs heavily in her process. Wolf has evolved into using rubber stamps in some of the gouache pieces, with small butterflies and sandpipers making appearances in otherwise abstract pieces. In her mixed media pieces, shimmering pastels take on cosmic patterns up close, revealing purple flowers and red-rimmed leaves as in "Bridge of Dreams", or seemingly underwater plants and a stenciled bright blue No. 2 as in "How Many". "A Destiny Full of Flowers and Thorns" is another great piece, featuring a grid of vibrant gouache farmland, including a flowering field and a small horse.

   The different approaches each artist takes do not devolve as happens in many shows that try too hard... the latest show at DeBlois truly sings.

Summer on the Cape...

   When Gallery 333 promoted their opening, they chose to use a painting by C.C. Wolf in their announcement advertisement in Cape Arts Review. Coincidentally, The Falmouth Enterprise wrote an article describing the show, and they, too, used one of Wolf's paintings to illustrate the story.

A review of a showing...

   Gallery Z in Providence featured C.C. Wolf and two other artists in a large show.

Quoted from the Providence Journal, June 18,2009.By Bill Van Siclen, Providence Journal Arts Writer
Wolf catches the wind
   In a statement that accompanies her new exhibit at Gallery Z, artist C.C. Wolf describes her goal as "trying to express a sense of flow." On paper, that might sound like a fool's errand - the artistic equivalent of trying to catch the wind. But in practice, Wolf's vibrant, lushly colored paintings really do manage to capture something of the flux and flow of human consciousness.

   Granted, even the most determined daydreamers can't always keep the real world out. A work called Traveling, for example, features a woman outlined against a shimmering background that may (or may not) be an airport terminal. Another work, The Opening, combines landscape features such as trees and hills with more abstract passages. Yet in the show's best works, Wolf lets her imagination break free of worldly constraints, allowing her brush to skip and swirl as though propelled by the wind itself. The result: paintings that have some of the breezy, freewheeling warmth of a good samba.
