Last month the art world lost a giant. German American painter Wolf Kahn 1927 – 2020
Kahn, known for his combination of Realism and Color Field, worked in pastel and oil paint. He studied under Hans Hofmann, and also graduated from the University of Chicago. Kahn was a resident of both New York City and, during the summer and autumn, West Brattleboro, Vermont.
In 2015 I got to see him give a demonstration of his process during which I took careful notes writing down what he said. The phrase that sticks with me is "Be in love with chaos." Not learn to cope, but embrace it. Seems like a useful thought for today.
