In my paintings I have usually tended to avoid figurative themes, because I want to express - on canvas, paper or re-cycled material - spiritual urges, using invented signs or the spontaneous rythm of coloured marks and lines. The writing element in my work, as an expression of energy, is often indecipherable and enigmatic, it nevertheless appears as a form of communication. - The land art project takes inspiration from the age-old traditions and symbolism of American pre-Columbian peoples - to reflect on the past, on culture, and on respect for peoples, nature and the balance of nature.


Monika Wolf lives and works in Milan, Italy. Diploma “designer grad.” Folkwang Hochschule, Essen. Study of Educational Art Teaching at the University of Düsseldorf. The current research focuses on the creation of polycrome assemblages, using waste and recycled materials. The paintings include the assemblages as an integral part of the work. Since 2009 “grows” the land art project “The sacred plants of the American Indians” at Parco Nord, Milan, in view of the EXPO 2015 “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. Since 1977 exhibitions in Europe and USA.
