Wool is an American painter known for creating pictorial forms, often void of color due to his loyalty to black and white. First gaining notoriety from his ‘word pictures’ of the late 1980s, Wool now works frequently with enamel paint on canvas, creating layered pieces, marked with paint spatter and sporadic drips.
Other characteristic tendencies include erasing almost-entire pictures then writing over them with black spray paint. He approaches art as a process that needs revision and often makes visible corrections within his works.
His work is included in the collections of over two-dozen international museums including London’s Tate Modern, The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and Boston’s Museum of Fine Art.
