The surface is the defining characteristic of works by Bloch, an artist known best for his moving and recognisable contemporary seascapes. His quiet and careful brushwork and his seamless assemblages have, over the past two decades, combined to yield works imbued with the romanticism of William Turner and the pure expression of Mark Rothko.
Bloch’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world, as well as being published in magazines and books, including his own, published by Chronicle Books and titled: “Wolfgang Bloch: The Colors of Coincidence”. Written by Mike Stice, and designed by David Carson. The book is an intimate and soulful account of the artist’s rich and layered life, featuring the most evocative examples from his body of work.
