Stephen Wolf explores the connection between human perception and the social constructs that define our world, via themes of identity, commodity, media, and popular culture. Wolf examines the power generated when one recognizes the moral and ethical values implied by his or her everyday choices. He employs juxtaposition and free-association to build layers of meaning, using appropriation as a strategy to question the culture of consumerism and commodification.
Wolf earned a B.F.A. from the California College of the Arts, San Francisco, and an M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
