Based in the San Francisco Bay Area since the early 1990’s, Lena Wolff is an artist whose work is grounded in American folk art and craft, taking shape in a range of mediums including drawing, paper collage, wood sculpture, murals and public projects. In her studio, she has always been inclined to work by hand and maintain an intimate connection to materials. Her recent collages and sculptures incorporate imagery from nature and the geometric abstractions of early American quilts, forming an interplay of repeated interconnected cosmic symbols in a variety of material approaches.
In addition to private collections, her work is in the public collections of the One Archive, the San Francisco Arts Commission, the Alameda County Arts Commission, Facebook, the Cleveland Clinic, the University of Iowa Museum and the Zuckerman Museum of Art, among others. In 2018, she will be an artist-in-residence for the month of June at the De Young Museum in San Francisco.
Lena Wolff has lives with her wife, Miriam Klein Stahl, and their daughter in Berkeley, California.
