Wolfgang Laib Artist's Eye

3 July 2020

For Wolfgang Laib, pollen is an extraordinary substance that signifies renewal, boundless energy, the temporal, the eternal, and the cycle of the seasons. This Spring more than ever, the process of solitary, humble harvesting has become a resonant metaphor for the way that nature — and art — can prompt us to search for meaning and our place in the world, a thought expressed in a statement released by the artist.
