Lotte Landscape I
The painting belongs to a series that is particularly concerned with the role of the sky in northern landscapes. At first sight idyllic and naturalistically, Wolff disturbs the multi-layered picture by using spatula and squeegee and thus gives it a subliminal drama and the viewer interpretative approaches beyond mere depiction. The admiration for the beauty of the landscape and the celestial phenomena remains clearly visible. The superimposition of delicate layers of glaze creates a warm and, despite the brightness, intense glow of the colours.
Despite the romantic first impression, Wolff creates a moment of irritation that only becomes apparent on closer inspection. The silhouettes seem blurred, as if doubly exposed, so that the viewer tries in vain to focus his eye on them. This raises the question of the condition of the one whose view of the dusk is captured here.
