About the Work

Branch-like lines in black pastel on a burnished grey ground strike out from an outcropping of silver leaf in the lower right corner of this intimate work on paper. Within the composition, a phrase "And what was in that box that was there all of the time --" is handwritten with the date August 15, 2017 and place, Toronto, in which the work was completed. The piece, like a diary entry, is a poetic rumination on a personal and idiosyncratic moment. Born in Saskatchewan, Ben Woolfitt has lived in Toronto since 1965 when he came to study at Founders College, York University. In 1966, he made a trip to New York City and while there was introduced to the paintings of Rothko, Louis, Hofmann and Olitski. In 1978, Woolfitt established what became a very successful wholesale business, Woolfitt's Art Supplies. Wolfitt's artworks are part of numerous public collections including the MacLaren Art Centre, Hart House at the University of Toronto, the Glenbow Museum, the Remai Modern and more. This mixed media work on paper is framed.
