Christopher Wool (b. 1955, Chicago, IL) is a contemporary American artist specializing in painting, printmaking and photography. Wool often creates tension in his work through stark tonal contrasts, the addition and removal of paint, and articulated gestures. His work focuses on the action involved in creating voids and contrasting them with built up layers of medium. Wool is known for his large-scale works on canvas that incorporate text, as well as for his constant reinvention of his artistic vision. He has been included in group and solo exhibitions the world over, most recently at the Venice Biennale and at Simon Lee Gallery and Gagosian Gallery in London.
