An excerpt from a catalogue essay for Wolfe’s 2005 show Nature Magnified at Gerald Peters Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico:
“...These paintings are so intense that you can hear them thinking...they speak of obsession, passion, logic, distance, intimacy, literalism, invention, observation, joy, patience, precision - a tangle of properties and inclinations, reflecting a sharp and searching intelligence. And paradoxically, it is that intelligence that outlines each form, each detail.”
- Brian O’Doherty, former art critic for The New York Times and past editor of Art in America
