‘In this artist’s book from 2018, Christopher Wool layers photos of backyard debris and dusty roads, of Texan wilderness and found situations rife with allusions to sculpture. Two realities invade each other, and their overlapping actualities collapse into an artistic reality beyond the moment caught by the artist’s camera. Thus the pictures are imbued with the history of their own making and filled with a vibrant sound close to that of Wool’s black-and-white paintings.’ – the publisher
