Christopher Wool

Since the early 80s Christopher Wool (born 1955 in Chicago, lives and works in New York City) has been using his painting to explore and expand the boundaries of a painting whose heroic period is past. Like Robert Gober, Cady Noland and Richard Prince—with whom he has worked—Wool has helped invent new forms for a supposedly wornout discipline. Throwing in references to music, cinema and art, he has created works testifying to the contemporary experience. Beginning with decorative patterns and letters that produced All-over paintings in which expression was cut to a minimum, he went on to use silkscreening for works that became steadily denser and freer.
