New colours are characteristic for the majority of Bolf’s works from the most recent period, although they elaborate his typical themes of faces veiled in sorrow, deserted or damaged hospital interiors and demolished or inhospitable quarters of pre-fabricated houses. Bolf does not stay put, he is never satisfied with what he does; an inner force constantly drives him to discover new and new painting possibilities. It is therefore difficult to predict in which direction the form of his painting will develop, although it is obvious that he will never abandon his world of young men and women, who are lonely or absorbed in sorrow.
