Featured Artwork: Christopher Wool, Untitled, 2006

Chicago-born artist Christopher Wool is best known for his graphic, black and white word paintings which feature statements or phrases with the vowels removed, laid out in gridded patterns. After relocating to New York City in the 1970s, Wool began experimenting with a new type of artistic process, using hand rollers to apply paint as a means of removing the painterly qualities from his work. By the 1990s, silkscreen became the artist’s preferred technique which allowed for the removal and reuse of imagery to create multi-layered compositions that had been transformed through the artistic process. More recently, Wool produced a series of works that he refers to as his “gray paintings,” large-scale abstractions that explore themes of creation and destruction.

Created for your delectation (and destruction) is an artistic lunch featuring almond-crusted tilapia with citrus cream reduction, julienne vegetables, rice pilaf, and cheesecake with raspberry sauce for dessert! Enjoy!
