Intro
(...) Like the monumental, entire wall-filling works ‘Hand Computer and Golden Cages’, which Lam de Wolf showed in Galerie Ra in 2002 and 2006, this time too it is about placing large numbers of relatively simple elements in patterns and layers. (...)
Lam de Wolf: Based on a fascination for grids – a given in my work – I’m interested in tall buildings and the skylines of major cities like Shanghai. The way the buildings reflect in each other, the interplay of vertical and horizontal lines and the distortion because of all the glass, create a new three-dimensionality. The buildings appear to be arguing with each other about ‘Who is the tallest’? ‘Who has the greatest presence’? Here power is literally depicted. It is these distorted, mobile grid patterns that are the inspiration for my new work: Reflections.

Like the monumental, entire wall-filling works ‘Hand Computer and Golden Cages’, which Lam de Wolf showed in Galerie Ra in 2002 and 2006, this time too it is about placing large numbers of relatively simple elements in patterns and layers. This results in spatiality, lightness and clarity and, by a change of light or direction of view, movement and dynamism.
