Clemens Wolf

Austrian artist Clemens Wolf is fascinated by ruins and building sites, and more particularly by the notion of the frontier or fence. The artist creates an optical distance between the viewer and the subject. His artworks have a strong sense of monumentality increased by an intense reflection on perspective. Besides his predominant work as a painter, the artist favors challenging the materials of construction, such as concrete or steel, especially for his public installations. Wolf’s works gather different contemporary influences, from Frank Stella to Richard Serra, as well as references from the past, including Francisco de Goya and Rembrandt.


Clemens Wolf’s work has been shown in group and solo shows, including Essl Museum, Klosterneuburg, Austria, Leopold Museum, Vienna, Vienna Biennale, National Art Museum of China, Beijing, and Meulensteen Art Museum, Bratislava, Slovakia. He has received numerous awards, including the Diesel New Art award and the Strabag Art award.
