Lot Essay

“I define myself in my work by reducing the things I don’t want – it seems impossible to know when to say “yes,” but I do know what I can say “no” to … It’s easier to define things by what they’re not than by what they are.” (C. WOOL, quoted in A. Schwartzman, ‘Artists in Conversation I: Chuck Close, Philip Taaffe, Sue Williams, Christopher Wool’, in Birth of the Cool: American Painting from Georgia O’Keeffe to Christopher Wool, exh. cat., Kunsthaus Zürich, Zurich, 1997, pp. 32-34)
