  • Catalogue Essay

    “The rawness of the roller marks, the sprayed streaks and blobs, keeps the refined picture-making honest in terms of real-world observation and location; just as, conversely, the evident sophistication of his craft carries its own honesty as to who the maker is, cutting against the sentimentality of impoverishment. On longer reflection, there is also an inner tension between the two kinds of marking, in that the figurated rollers signify the overpainted interior and the graffiti-style spraying conjures up the street and the walls on the outside of buildings. Connoted spaces are as important as illusionistic ones: Wool’s balancing and welding together of this inside-outside contradiction suspends the work between its referents, lending it an independent center of gravity, making it a space where the mind’s eye can move in more than one direction.” (T. Crow, taken from Streetecriesinnewyork: On the Painting of Christopher Wool in A. Goldstein, Christopher Wool, Los Angeles, 1999, p. 280)
