Volke's journey from truck driver to artist began in 2003 when he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. He started the art therapy program at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare as a way to manage his illness. With Volke's paintings in private and corporate collections around the world, this is the first opportunity to see and purchase Volke's work since his untimely passing in April of 2016.
Volke's love of acrylics shows in both his unorthodox subject matter and techniques - using brushes and a fork to apply sharp dense shades of color onto canvas.
The attraction of Volke's paintings ranges from the simplicity in his use of color to the complex subject matter drawn from his struggles with schizophrenia. Volke's work is a great addition to your fine art home decor.
