Catalogue Note

"Wool’s pattern painting evoke a peculiar disjunction between the prettifying intention of the rollers and the ascetic formal language in which he deployed them, described by as an interesting friction generated by putting forms that were supposed to be decorative in such severe terms.”
Katherine Brinson
