Christopher Wool At The Guggenheim

LUTZ05

Artist Christopher Wool’s first ever New York retrospective opened last week taking over the entire main gallery at the Guggenheim.  Since his emergence in the 1980s on the New York art scene, Wool has forged ahead with his style of  geometric designs, pattern and graphic paintings, to create an impressive body of work.

Much of the work in the show is in black and white but the occasional piece bursts with intense yellow or red, making the view of the monochromatic show in the Guggenheim’s magnificent rotunda, with its sparse bursts of color, a unique and striking show.
