Lot Essay

'In many works the image is so faint at times that it almost fades away entirely. In fact, the eye does move across the painting's surface repeatedly because in ordinary life, outside of painting, variation implies change or development, and the viewer actually tries to read the imperfections of the process for meaning.'
(J. Caldwell, quoted in A. Goldstein, 'What they're not: The Paintings of Christopher Wool' in A. Goldstein, Christopher Wool, exh.cat., Eli Broad Foundation, Los Angeles 1992, p. 259).
