"The clarity of Wolfgang Hock's paintings is all the more striking because of the sense of mystery that infiltrates the structuring of forms that comprising his work." John Austin, ManhattanView Gallery
My paintings are made from visual imaginations and memories using photos, other collected pictures and drawings as templates. Scenes of personal life and from the journeys between my two worlds, America and Europe, are the point of departure.
Although I studied in West-Germany and spent there the bigger part of my life, my painting has a lot to do with Brazil, where I lived from 1993 to 2011 in four big cities – in Salvador, Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba and in Fortaleza ."
