The Wolfmans Beach - a nice place to paint

The Wolfman rarely goes swimming and he never plays beachvolley! And as The Wolfman is the only one living on Wolfmans Island, there is no sense in going babe-watching on The Beach... (though he always hope that someday he will meet a mermaid there.)

The Wolfman visits the beach for quite different reasons. Sometimes he goes there just to stroll along it, thinking thought a little brighter than when walking in The Dark Forest, or to find things, that the sea has washed up on the sand, like obscure and cryptic messages from the surrounding word. Other times, when a storm is passing his island, he comes to the beach to feel the sensation of the raging of the elements. This is when you'll find him howling against the gale, getting high on the roaring winds and the intoxicating effects of natures raw powers at large. But mostly, on the quiet days - the sunny or the gray cloudy days - he comes to the beach to paint.

To The Wolfman the beach has a very special symbolic meaning. This is the zone where three elements meet - the land; which represents the intellect and the conscious; the sea that represents the feelings and the subconscious; and the air representing the ideals and the spiritual. On this borderline between the Id and the Egos, the energies of creativity are intensly present, and if The Wolfman can succeed in connecting these three elements with the fourth, the element of the fire - the element of passion and instinct - the element within himself - works of art may be created.

Here you can take a look of some of the paintings The Wolfman has made through the last years, these are only a few, and they are all small paintings (because the larger ones can't go into the scanner) but they are quite representative of his visual language and favourite themes and styles, of the time they were painted.

Take a look in The Wolfmans small black books of sketches and drawings. The Sketchbook contains some of his numerous small sketches and scriblings in pencil or pen. The Orbiter Drawings are a serie of drawings made with pen and correction fluid. More book will hopefully be added soon. - a JavaScript capable browser is needed to view the books!
