Item description for Christopher Wool: 9th Street Run Down by Christopher Wool & Hans Werner Holzwarth...

Since the late 1970s, Christopher Wool has readdressed and expanded the process of painting. In 9th Street Run Down he creates a complex fiction out of 44 large works on paper all made over the past year. Wool started these "painted silkscreens" as studio sketches after his retrospective exhibits in Los Angeles, Basel, Pittsburgh, and Geneva. It was immediately clear that they would become an outstanding grouping of works embodying a special "narrative" that is very much a part of Wool's work. As the art critic Neville Wakefield has written: "To spend time amongst [Wool's] art is something akin to being caught in the compulsive and circular absurdity of a Beckett play. The characters within a painting state their case with a simple and irrefutable logic. 'A painting of a painting is still a painting', Wool insists, after all. And yet like Beckett's Godot, its importance, let alone its existence, may well be something that can never be quite confirmed. Wool offers no reassurances to the contrary. But in his own tireless vigil he brings to the activity particular and extraordinary worth." In 9th Street Run Down the reader becomes part of the play on stage.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christopher Wool: 9th Street Run Down?

A nice suite of Wools work  Jul 29, 2005
This is a nice suite of prints which deal with Wools obliteration painting technique. While the majority are in Black and White, there are some startling colour examples here too, which give the viewer a bit more in terms of Wools style. If your looking for an overview of his work, then I suggest getting hold of that retrospective catalogue published years ago. The design of this book has some good and bad points about it. The good thing is that the printing is fantastic, and the images are huge ( at least A3 in size )...but the down size is that it's a big, skinny, floppy thing to lug around!
