More info on Christopher Wool and pictures after the jump.
Born in Chicago, Christopher Wool relocated to New York City in the early 1970â€™s. During that time he studied painting and worked as an artist’s assistant to Joel Shapiro. In 1984, Wool had his first solo show at the legendary Cable Gallery. Working mainly in black and white, Wool works with a mixture of painterly styles. His earlier works include tightly controlled, gestural drip paintings and canvases utilizing decorative rollers on white backgrounds to produce floral and gate-like images.
In 1987, Christopher Wool began his black and white stenciled word paintings. Wool carefully chose words and phrases for these pieces and the letter composition he applied set his work apart from the stencil art category. Examples like â€œRiotâ€, â€œPranksterâ€, or â€œSell The House Sell The Car Sell The Kidsâ€ force viewers to go one step beyond reading into deciphering.
Since his first one-man show Christopher Woolâ€™s work has been shown at the Whitney Biennial 1989, Museum of Modern Art, New York, the New Museum of Art Lucerne, Switzerland, and Contemporary Museum of Art, Los Angeles.
