Wolf Kahn is an American painter internationally recognized for his vivid abstracted landscapes.
"I am always trying to get to the danger point, where color either becomes too sweet or too harsh; too noisy or too quiet."
The unique blend of realism and formal discipline of Color Field painting sets the work of Wolf Kahn apart. He never truly commits to a painting style, but rather blends them together creating works that evolve from one predominant color.
Instead of finding a color in the landscape, he begins with a color idea and focuses on the ways the painting springs forth from that hue. Honing in on landscape as an abstraction, Kahn's works exhibit a gestural approach with added notes of linearity.
