'Dark' is an oil and gloss painting on canvas. 'My style combines the opposing influences which the inner city offers. I explore the contrast of the soft human body and the hard urban surrounding through shape and texture. The mediums of oil and gloss on canvas have become my favourite, as they can produce a wide variety of textures and are very rich and vibrant in their colour.'

Fontaine-Wolf is an artist of great technical ability, tact and an instinct so sure and refined that her work can afford to be as much about what she leaves out as what she gives existence to in the final work. A fine balance between the extremes of the photo-realistic and the expressionist; polished fullness and the flatness of a blank canvas, the resulting paintings retain the rawness of a work that seems to have been born in front of you. This dialectic between the tamed and the wild finds its thematic echo in the notion of femininity and the expectations of beauty that Wolf presents and evaluates.
