Catalogue Note

"Whether paint rollers, letter stencils, spray paint, or silkscreen, Wool controls the chaos, to offer us a kind of primary viewing, the image as pre-linguistic, pre-thought means of communicating. With their grand scale, bold unapologetic presence and their stark, black and white confidence, Wool’s paintings seem like an indescribable urban cool, a tense fusion of intellect and emotion, control and chaos."
