Exploring Botanicals
Anderson Virtual

Mon univers artistique ressemble à un cabinet de curiosités : graines, coquillages, papillons. Mais je puise également aux sources de l’architecture, du design, de la science, de la calligraphie... Avec une obsession, l’exactitude.

My artistic universe resembles a curio cabinet: seeds, seashells, butterflies. But I also draw upon the sources of architecture, design, science and calligraphy… With one obsession: accuracy.

Native American Paintings
Anderson Virtual

Jack Wolfe's interest in and affinity toward Native American communities and cultures began in childhood, when he and his sister spent summers in the Lake Tahoe area, often visiting a Washo community where they played with other children and listened to stories. Jack’s concern with the historical and contemporary oppression of Native Americans by the United States, including acts of genocide and cultural genocide (e.g., forced assimilation; proscriptions on use of languages and cultural practices; adoption of abducted or removed Native American children into white families – a practice that persisted through much of the 20th century), the breaking of federal treaties, and exploitation of Native American land, among other acts of overt and structural violence, persisted throughout his life.

Anderson Virtual

In recent weeks, the images flooding traditional and social media of current protests against racial injustice and the killing of black people encourage reflection on similarities and areas of progress between the present and the time of the civil rights movement. Across the over-saturated span of highly polarized contemporary media, some rhetoric has shifted, while other aspects of the dialogue about race and racism echo the past uncannily.
