Christopher Wool

Christopher Wool, born in 1955, is an American artist best known for his large, black, stenciled letters on white canvases. The words he uses are often broken up by a grid system or with the vowels removed. Wool's paintings often demand to be read aloud to make sense.


This work is part of Christopher Wool's 1989 collection from the Black Book. It is one of 17 screen prints  printed on smooth wove paper, and was originally bound in jet-black paper covered boards.
