Accompanying the exhibition that took place at Secession, Vienna in 2001, this artist book consists of polaroids reproduction of Wool’s work.
At the Secession, the American artist Christopher Wool continues the presentation of works questioning the boundaries of the genre of painting or painting within the process of painting. Wool’s works are essentially a continuous dissolution and rematerialization of composition. They are a constant analysis of form, line, color, framework, arrangement and representation. The significance of his works is found in the suspensions and cancellations that define his pictures. Instead of a “concrete” statement, the pictures demonstrate the process of physical or intellectual work in the act of creating art and embody a constant awareness of the process of the genesis of the work itself. — Fragment of the exhibition text
