Phyllis is working towards her next solo show which open at Dorset County Museum on Friday 21 November.
The show will feature mostly new paintings – many which have not been shown before, and the big exciting painted screens which measure 1.50 x 1.50. Always vital and life affirming, you can see the vigour and confidence of an artist in her prime. Phyllis’s work speaks of her connection with the landscape that surrounds and nurtures her! – Landscape and Identity!
Fay Weldon who also has a strong sense of belonging to the Dorset landscape and community has this to add:
Truth, Beauty, and the Artist
The true artist goes on pursuing truth and beauty while never quite managing to find it – which is why he or she goes on painting. With the depth of her layered strong colours and insight into shape and form, Phyllis Wolff gets nearer to the hidden truth than most. If she never moves far from the landscape, the flowers and fruits, trees and hills she knows so well, it’s because she sees truth and beauty here now, and all around.
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty” – that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know. – John Keats 1820
