The sculptural works of Liuba Wolf exist in the realm between figuration and abstraction. Her hybrid vocabulary reflects Pre-Columbian, African and Cycladic influences in search of a universal visual language rooted in ancestral forms. Her highly stylized biomorphic works are evocative of birds taking flight. They are characterized by a sense of archaic monumentality achieved through the simplification of form and underscoring of volume. Primarily known for her large bronze sculptures, the artist deftly translates her sculptural aesthetic to a jewellery scale, as evidenced by this brooch, initially purchased from the artist during the São Paulo Art Biennial in 1963.
