Wool, Christopher (American painter, born 1955)

Note: Wool attended both Sarah Lawrence College, New York, and The New York Studio School. His paintings typically feature stamped, stenciled, or screenprinted images of decorative patterns or words, though later works are made with a variety of gestures and media, including spray paint, to create mostly monochromatic abstract imagery. He has exhibited extensively internationally and was the subject of a retrospective at the Guggenheim, NY, in 2013.
