Word into image. RUN DOG RUN beat a tattoo in an earlier cycle of paintings; here it becomes a fleeting presence captured in a painterly snapshot.


“Wool looks you in the face; he says what you’re used to hearing; he disrupts the communicative power of words; he affirms the communicative power of letters. Someone is shouting, but you can’t tell if that person is trying to make you understand or insisting that you don’t have a clue.” Greil Marcus Parkett No. 33, 1992
