Philip Wolfhagen is in the midst of creating a series of new multi-panel paintings for his upcoming exhibition ‘Elegies’, which will open on 27 September at DMG. These works have been featured in the July-September issue of Art Collector in an evocative article written by Briony Downes titled ‘In Our Nature’ on pages 162 – 167.
“There is no doubt Wolfhagen is an expert at the atmospheric. He has held a longstanding fascination with the works of 19th century artist Caspar David Friedrich and French Baroque painter Claude Lorrain. His paintings often reflect the [Tasmanian] landscape around him; the grey lilac skies of early morning over pasture or the crackling embers of a distant fire. … It is a view that has been studied intently by Wolfhagen for more than 20 years.”
