Sell the Kids
The Christopher Wool Art Edition
Wool became known in the mid-1980s through all-over paintings produced with rubber rollers commonly used to simulate decorative wallpaper patterns on walls. By 1988 he had hit stride with his dry, dead-pan word paintings (“Trbl,” “Riot,” “Sell the House, Sell the Car, Sell the Kids”), while continuing to explore the possibilities of pattern painting. From the 1990s, he developed the painterly qualities of his work, using a mostly black-and-white palette, starting from abstract lines drawn with a spray gun or layered stock images, overpainting silk screens on linen, wiping out images, with a widening variety of media, including photography, silkscreen, and computer graphics.
This impressive Art Edition, signed by the artist, comes with an original Wool artwork produced exclusively for this publication, a digital collage of photographs of Wool paintings that arrives at a new, entirely abstract image. Across more than 500 pages,the monograph itself covers all phases of Wool’s career to date in large-scale reproductions, production Polaroids,and installation photos by Wool himself. Essays and analyses by Glenn O’Brien, Jim Lewis, Ann Goldstein, Anne Pontégnie, Richard Hell, and Eric Banks make this book a great read as well as a definitive study of the artist’s oeuvre so far.
