Catalogue published for two exhibitions: The Consortium, Dijon; Dundee Contemporary Arts, Scotland (2002).
The first publication exploring the relationship between abstract minimalist Wool's paintings, and his interest for photography.
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
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.
