Christopher Wool

Galerie Max Hetzler Berlin | Paris / Holzwarth Publications, Berlin 2017

In his exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler [exhibition: Christopher Wool, Galerie Max Hetzler, 2017], Wool presents works on paper, several large-sized paintings as well as a single small sculpture. His paintings, dated 2016 and 2017, are re-appropriations of an early group of works on paper made in 1986, the so called Rorschach series referring to Swiss psychoanalyst Hermann Rorschach. Scanned and enlarged by Wool, he uses them as compositorial elements within his new paintings. The works on paper from 2016 derive from a series of silkscreens printed in 2006. Ten years later, Wool returns to this selection and overpaints them with oil and enamel. By combining techniques of painting and printing, he dissolves the borders of both genres and refuses to maintain the distinctions attributed to each of them.
