Dorle Wolf is a painter who cannot be stereotyped. Her artistic "handwriting" cannot be affixed to a particular technique or to the themes contained in her pictures. Despite all her fondness for the abstract, she still makes forays into the representational. To repeat herself is to bore herself. Her incessant search for perpetually new ways and means of expressing the real, the invisible, could, if looked at superficially, give rise to the impression that she still has not found her very own pathway to painting. No, on the contrary! Her aim is to express certain mental images, and various paths lead in that direction, with all their intertwinings, branchings and dead ends. For however different her subjects and techniques may be, which are well considered before she uses them, there is always something that shines through despite all the diversity, something which is hard to grasp in words, but which renders her works unmistakable. It has something to do with the way in which she inserts the colour. The "conjugation of colour" becomes the common denominator, whereas other painters, as, for example, Lyonel Feininger, lay the main stress on "conjugation of form". By conjugation of colour, Dorle Wolf means the fanning out of a certain colour into its various colour values: for example, many and diverse shades of red, from orange to tomato red shine out next to bluish shaded purple and violet tones or pure blue next to greenish ones. So it is only rarely that her works are intellectualised designs; mostly they particularly address the unknown, the emotional, through the poetic power of their colours. This is expressed in many of the titles she has given to her pictures. Dorle Wolf cannot be counted in any way as one of the "summary of contents refused" people, who are in the habit of labelling their works untitled, but rather as a person who admits to her sentiments and invites the observer to share in them.

To designate a painting "beautiful" is often misunderstood as to disparage it. In contrast, the term beauty in Dorle Wolf’s works stands for an inner harmoniousness, which stems from a deeply positive inner composure, an attitude of composure which does not want to shake up or harm the observer, but which dares in its own vulnerability to abandon itself defencelessly to him.
