The new artwork features the artwork of Alsace-Lorraine, postimpressionist artist Wolfgang Wolff (1909 – 1994.) Wolff & his wife fled Nazi oppression with a daring escape to Tahiti, leaving behind family, home, country, and most of their worldly possessions in 1938. With the commencement of World War 2, he was imprisoned in a prison camp by the French on Tahiti because of his German birth. His wife smuggled art supplies and finished works in and out of the prison in their baby’s diapers during visits which allowed Wolfgang to continue working during his internment. Like Jez’s work, Wolfgang’s work, depicts every day life and addresses social justice issues subtly through the lives of their subjects. We were allowed accessed to Wolfgang’s work, courtesy of his son, Goetz Wolff.
