Michael Wolf  New York City area artist, contributing writer for Art Zealous, adjunct professor, board member of the Sculptors Guild

On a hot summer day, I walked into Norte Dame from the bright sun into the cool dark interior of the cathedral the colored light from the rose window dabbled the floor, the choir was singing; it was an unforgettable moment. I remember climbing worn stone stairs up through the bell tower to the walkway on the roof mingling with the crowd and the gargoyles with a breathtaking view of Paris. #sanctuary #sanctuary #notredame #ourlady #paris #cathedral #catholic #church #longtimeago #filmcamera #france

New Art Zealous article on the Warhol and Basquiat exhibitions and their collaboration. I was able to visit both exhibitions on the same day. It was a treat! The Warhol retrospective is over but the Basquiat exhibition continues. Check out the article. Link in bio.

Sisyphus Man is making a comeback continuing to push fruitlessly against the powers that be. Cast in bronze this time he will continue to make spontaneous appearances. Here he struggles to as Langston Hughes put it to “Make America America Again” “Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed—
Let it be that great strong land of love
Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme
That any man be crushed by one above” #instainstallation #installationart #sculpture #contemporaryart #art #installation #bronze #bronzesculpture #langstonhughes #makeamericaamericaagain #whitehouse #washingtondc #washington @cherylmcginnisprojects

Thank you ! @nicolecasamento · · · Thankful I got to visit “I’m Your Venus” @thebeeinthelion gallery yesterday, thanks to @michael_wolfs_work, whose contemporary take on the #VenusOfWillendorf inspired the exhibition. Looking at the way women have been portrayed throughout history & how contemporary artists see them/themselves today, the show spotlights recent painting & sculpture alongside classical works from hundreds of years ago. The woman-owned, by-appointment gallery focuses on promoting contemporary artists with a serious dedication to their craft as well as giving visitors a religious-like viewing experience with more privacy and time to engage with the works. Here: Woodblock print of Ladies of Tokuygawa Period (1895-97) by #HashimotoChikanobu: “Venus Rising” by #Arslan (2019, oil on canvas); two looks at “I’m Your Venus” by @michael_wolfs_work (2019, copper, stone & 18k gold-plated brass); detail of “Cat Cow” by #DanaNechmad (2017, oil & bleach on dyed canvas); & “Revenge Bodies” by #JanieKorn (2017, clay resin & acrylic). .

Show closes Friday. Check out the review in @ante__mag “Michael Wolf figuratively radicalizes the “Venus of Willendorf” for a post-pop generation. Bright interpretations of the figurine push the bounds of the icon into revered idolism.” 🔗in bio Email info@beeinthelion.com to set up an appointment. @thebeeinthelion #painting #sculpture #art #artistsoninstagram #contemporaryart #artgallery #artcollector #venus #venusofwillendorf #imyourvenus #artnyc #kipsbay #gallerist #curator

I was excited about Heatherwick’s Vessel when it was under construction. It looked like a giant Tony Smith sculpture. The finished version with its glossy metal finishes makes it look more like a Trump Tower escalator...disappointed. BTW did Manhattan need a mall? #hudsonyards #architecture #sculpture #manhattan #mall #westside

#Repost @reinventingrid Thanks for visiting the show Ingrid!! · · · 📏Did you know the Venus of Willendorf is less than 4.5’’ (about 11 cm)? More netsuke than sculpture, it is a portable fertility icon from 25,000 BCE. It inspired two of Michael Wolf’s artworks currently exhibited @thebeeinthelion .
One is a true-to-size 3D printed 18k gold-plated brass sculpture emulating the tactile beauty of the original while Michael’s blue ink swirl drawing shows how big a place this Venus carved itself in #arthistory 📖
A pleasure to meet you, Bee Tham and @michael_wolfs_work 😘
