Christopher Wool's paintings put me in mind of rock'n'roll songs and how they recycle the same slender means: three, maybe four chords, a plaintive lyric repeated over and over in strict 4/4 time. It's not much compared with Hindemith, but an electric guitar in the right hands can be so riveting that it's the only sound you want to hear. (David Salle Town & Country)
Published to commemorate his retrospective at the Guggenheim museum, this catalog presents a vast selection of Christopher Wool's paintings, photographs and other works to date. (Noelle Lacombe CULTURED)
