Theo Wolvecamp (Hengelo, 1925-1992)
Theo Wolvecamp started painting during the war and attended the art academy in Arnhem from 1945 to 1947. During that period, the German and Flemish expressionism strongly preoccupies him. In 1947 he settled in Amsterdam and after working for a short time in Cubist, he developed his own world of spontaneous dropped abstract signs. Wolvecamp was co-founder of the Dutch Experimental Group in 1948. By this time he was already busy experimenting. For example, he used sand in his cloths. In 1949 he left the CoBrA movement after the exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum, but became a member again in 1951. Little of his work from the CoBrA years has been preserved remained, because, dissatisfied with the result, he destroyed much. The outdoorsman Wolvecamp, who has never been able to settle in the city, returned to his birthplace after the international CoBrA adventure. From a strong experience of nature, he worked there in seclusion on a strong personal expressionism with characteristic shapes and colours, building on the techniques developed during the CoBrA period. symbolic language of spots and stripes and swirling lines. It was not until 1967 that he publicized his work with a solo exhibition in Arnhem. In the following years his work was exhibited at various exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad abroad.
