GLASS CARICATURES BY HANS JÜRGEN WOLFF

Hans Jürgen Wolff has worked with glass for more than fifty years. With his extensive training as a master glazier, he first produced windows, glass paintings and light objects commissioned by the church in his own workshop in Kyritz/Sechzehneichen.

From 1986 onwards, he worked for many years for the internationally renown Mayer‘sche Hofkunstanstalt and the Bayerische Hofglasmalerei Gustav van Treeck – companies with a long tradition. At the same time, Wolff began to work as a freelance artist. Conceptually he started out from the leaded windows of his professional activity: He freed the depicted scenes of their frames and removed the backgrounds. The figures thus lost their rigid context.
