At the heart of Christopher Wool’s creative project, which spans three decades of highly focused practice, is the question of how a picture can be conceived, realized, and experienced today. Engaging the complexities of painting as a medium, as well as the anxious rhythms of the urban environment and a wide range of cultural references, his agile, largely monochrome works propose an open-ended series of responses to this central problem. With a cover designed by the artist, this fully illustrated exhibition catalogue presents a rich selection of paintings, photographs, and works on paper; a comprehensive essay by the exhibition curator with supplementary texts; and a detailed bibliography and exhibition history.
