Lulu Wolf is an artist based in Lisbon, via New York and Los Angeles.
My practice explores the relationship between images, materiality, and perception through a range of media, from the two-dimensional to sculpture and video. I am interested how a close examination of a static moment or detail can serve as a tool for a continuous inquiry of awareness and, specifically, how seriality can amplify this revealing.
My process often begins with an abstraction or obfuscation of the subject as a means to generate multiple readings, encouraging the viewer to bridge the recognizable and the ambiguous. Like Beckett’s strategies of permutation, by reiterating the particular and repeating the same vocabulary (or image) over and over, the subject is both reduced and expanded. Through repetition and seriality, the objective becomes mutable and the minor becomes profound. With each revisitation one begins to read oneself and one’s previous readings; at once being broken down and built anew.
When I say read, I mean see.
