STEVE WOLFE (1955–2016)

“Steve Wolfe, known for his scrupulous and sculptural recreations of literary classics—such as Gertrude Stein’s The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, 1933, or a Penguin reprinting of Voltaire’s Candide, 1759,—as well as full-length records and 45s from the likes of Joni Mitchell, Otis Redding, or the Beatles, died. Wolfe’s oeuvre, more than anything else, seems to function as an intimate self-portrait—much in the way that anyone’s personal collection of books or music usually is.” [Artforum]
