"My g-g-g grandfather Peter Wolfe arrived in Chewton in 1856 fresh off the boat from Ireland and our family has lived in the district and Central Victoria ever since. Unlike many new chums who came to the Forest Creek diggings seeking a fortune in gold, Peter was a mounted trooper - a copper - and he and wife Mary and their ever-expanding family were stationed at Red Hill. The old lock up is there to this day.

The Chewton bushland remain one of my favourite places to walk, draw and ponder the effects of the gold rush on the landscape and the Jaara people. If the local mob hold country in stories, myths and song, then, in my own small way, I'd like to think these paintings are our 'memory box' a place where my family's collective experience lives on. For better or worse."

As a painter and photographer Michael Wolfe draws inspiration from the landscape around his home in Castlemaine, Victoria. He has exhibited widely in Australia and internationally and his work is included in public, corporate and private collections.
