The View From Here - January 9

This month we're celebrating #delvefabrication, and were excited to learn about the various processes involved in creating Christopher Wool's paintings. From the accompanying wall text: "[Wool] fabricated his stamps in rectilinear units that left traces of paint at their edges when applied. This resulted in an incidental gridding of the surface, prefiguring the embrace of visual noise created by methods of mechanical reproduction in later bodies of work."
