Suly B. Wolff|
Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, I was exposed to art from a very young age. By 11 years old, I started taking organized sketching classes. At the age of 18, I immigrated to Israel and studied at Seminar Ha'kibbutzim to became a teacher of the very young. A few years later I decided to go for interior design and studied another 3 years at "ORT". Designing in all it's forms fascinated me and I dealt in a variety of its aspects. 13 years ago I decided to devote myself to painting.
My creative work is marked and affected by my being an immigrant who has been uprooted from one country Brazil to another Israel.
While trying to accommodate myself to a new place, a new language and a new culture, I found myself attracted by certain species of trees which seemed to me alien to this new landscape, mainly tropical palm trees and Eucalyptuses. These trees where themselves imported from other places for different reasons: the palm trees were meant to decorate and enrich Israeli gardens, visually and aesthetically, while the Eucalyptus played a major role in cultivating the wild land of Israel, as they used to absorb the waters of the many swamps, thus fighting against the Malaria mosquitoes.
These trees, mainly Eucalyptus, became a major theme in my paintings, as well as a kind of consolation and encouragement. This is an ongoing source of creation for me, in which I find endless possibilities.
