About the Artist
Painting for Pedie Wolfond is a meditative act. Wolfond paints her enormous canvases on the floor of her studio, kneeling, reaching, and stretching to methodically apply layers of acrylic washes to the surface. Wolfond says she often visualizes a painting before she begins as she floods the surface with luscious and vibrant hues. Beginning her painting career in the 1950s, Wolfond’s work came of age with the Colour Field and Abstract Expressionist movements. Throughout her 60 years of painting she has maintained a language of luminous depth and dancing veils of colour as she continues to challenge her explorations in paint.
