Painting’s Endgame – Christopher Wool at the Guggenheim

Christopher Wool is one of many painters who have experimented with bringing their medium to extinction. They strip it of familiar attributes like imagery, brushwork or flatness, often ending up with some kind of monochrome that suggests the last painting that could possibly be made.

Again and again, these works make viewers ask, in effect: Are you kidding me? That’s a painting?
