Todd Wolfe, an artist from Owego, NY, is happy to present recent works in his first solo show Breaking the Plane: Iterations.  In fall of 2021, Todd had one of those elephant-in-the-room epiphanies that all artist canvases are flat, and since then he has been working to free the canvas from its two-dimensional norm.  By stretching canvas over plywood forms, and then arranging these forms together, Todd creates mesmerizing three-dimensional wall sculptures that redefine what the traditional artist canvas can be.  

 

According to Todd: 

“Few people have intentionally stretched canvas outside of its traditional two-dimensional plane. From the moment I realized this, all I have been able to think about is how I can introduce that third dimension into the canvas.  ‘Breaking the Plane’ captures that goal through the 15 works that will be on display during the show.  ‘Iterations’ embodies both the process that has brought me to where I am in the development of three dimensional canvas as well as the vast possibilities that are available through simply rearranging the individual canvases in relationship to each other.  There are thousands of possibilities, no two alike.”
