#ChristopherWool , Apocalypse Now. Alkyd and flashe on aluminum and steel, 84 x 72 in. (213.4 x 182.9 cm.) Painted in 1988. “The words Wool has painted come from the most intimate sort of communication: that of a husband to his wife," @jerrysaltz wrote upon seeing the painting in 1988. "Yet, the words transmit a sense of dread and despair, hysteria and catharsis. Wool has chosen words that are directive, peremptory, somewhat accusatory. They express terror succinctly and bluntly. We are instantly put in touch with an unraveling mind in an unraveling time. The quote is like some joke gone monstrously bad. This is a last communion from a soul whose world has been turned inside out, a message to the living from the dead. It is a message in a bottle from someplace gone wrong, imparting a sense of Dickensian catastrophe (like losing the farm), on a global scale. Desperate and hopeless, forlorn and heartsick, this is the mantra of the lost: a lamentation of the irretrievable. All those things held dear by the world are renounced and relinquished. Family, possessions, home and love are all worthless now. Order is replaced by total social breakdown and social chaos. Wool has applied the letters with a graffiti-like touch, thereby echoing in the painting, the scratched quality of the letter. Apocalypse Now is like an evil crossword puzzle filled in by the damned, the words breaking down with indeterminate angularity into chaos and confusion. The painting becomes a chant, a rant, a slogan, and a scream" (J. Saltz, "This is the End: Christopher Wool's Apocalypse Now" in Arts Magazine, vol. 63, no. 1, Sept.1988, p. 20). #apocalypsenow #sellthehouse #sellthehousesellthecarsellthekids #painting #artdirect
Christopher Wool “Untitled” 1988 and Bernard Williams “Bass Reeves Indian Territory” 1999. Bass Reeves was the first African-American deputy US Marshal west of the Mississippi, in Arkansas and Oklahoma Territory. He arrested over 3,000 outlaws and many suggest might have been the inspiration for the Lone Ranger. #tiacollection #christopherwool #bernardwilliams #loneranger #bassreeves

Yesterday, the American was the ninth artist to complete an “Artist Edition” in the Berlin WELT newsroom. In it he presents about 40 brand-new, previously unpublished works and has transformed the newspaper into a work of art. He thus follows in the footsteps of Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, Gerhard Richter and others. Christopher Wool’s Artist Edition of DIE WELT is published today. Gratulation to Cornelius Tittel #blau and Ulf Poschardt & team at Die Welt.

‘Under the Night Sky’ closes this Saturday, December 15. Spanning the spaces of Friedman Benda and albertz benda, the exhibition brings together significant works by modern, post-war, and contemporary artists and designers with a selection of seminal Central Asian rugs. The works in the exhibition engage with the night sky on both conscious and unconscious levels, featuring the interplay between literal homages to the night sky and works with looser interpretations of the theme, whose makers innately channel the emotive presence of night. #christopherwool #yayoikusama #kathleenjacobs #baluch #albertzbenda #friedmanbenda #underthenightsky
