Master of Light in art

Wolfgang Lammle.

Internationally acclaimed Master of Light, Wolfgang Lämmle presents what he considers his final exhibition, at Cooroy’s Butter Factory Arts Centre (BFAC) this month.

The Cooroy local has spent his life honing his painting skills and gathering some colourful stories along the way.

Born in Germany in 1941, Lämmle began his life as a printmaker and over the years has been a gallery owner, teacher, artist, curator, and author. He hosted exhibitions throughout Germany, Switzerland and France before making Cooroy his home in 2007.

Recent health issues have limited his studio time and he considers this exhibition to be his last.

BFAC coordinator Alicia Sharples said it had been a treat to find the master artist tucked away in the Noosa


“It’s so exciting to show the work of this amazing artist,” Alicia said.

“He moves light around the canvas like few do these days – you can look into his works and forget you’re not sitting there in the dappled shade of a big, beautiful tree.

“And then when you meet the man, he’s got this almost punk attitude to the world, it’s an intriguing combination.

“We’re all very excited to present a show of this calibre, and look forward to experiencing the response.”

Master of the Light will be exhibited at BFAC from January 17 to February 26 with an official opening on Friday 18 January from 6-8pm. Free entry. All welcome.
