  • Catalogue Essay

    "Nearly all of Wool's paintings — be they composed of letter and words, or the palimpsests of other mark-making activities — telegraph some... message of disenfranchisement. Dispense with hierarchy, dispense with composition and colour, dispense with pictorial order, they seem to say. Yet, paradoxically, from this confrontation with painting's supposed civility, Wool makes an elegant and formidable case for it being alive and well." (N. Wakefield, 9th Street Rundown, London, 2001)
