Catalogue Note

"A body of work known as the '9th Street Rundown' drawings... functions like a typology of painterly gestures. Notably the works interweave appropriated and original forms without differentiation; some were spontaneously made by the artist himself, but others were lifted directly from illustrations in a guide to abstract painting for the amateur."

Katherine Brinson, 'Trouble is My Business' in: Exhibition Catalogue, New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Christopher Wool, 2013, pp. 46-47.
