Best known for his text-based paintings including Trbl and Riot, Christopher Wool made his name in the ’80s and hasn’t looked back, constantly expanding his repertoire of verbal possibility, patterns, and media. With more than 500 pages, this sizable monograph includes production Polaroids, installation shots, and impeccable artwork reproductions to document his upfront and ever-inquisitive oeuvre.

In your face, achingly simple, deceptively frank, the work of Christopher Wool is so very New York. Though he owes a debt to Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, he completely transcends these genres. Whether it’s a text-based painting or an abstract spray-painted piece, Wool questions painting, like many other artists in his generation, but he doesn’t provide any easy answers. As one piece proclaims, “The harder you look the harder you look.” Exploring Wool’s work in close to 500 pages, this monograph is staggering in scope and depth.
