Clean-cut time, neat, tidy and manageable; the woolly foreground tells a different story.


"As Wool has gradually pulled away from language, he has moved ever closer to paintings that slip further and further into the void. There is a real menace that comes with the fog and the rot and the glimpses of graffiti hanging in the air like satanic versions of the Northern Lights.”
