CHRISTOPHER WOOL & HIS STUDIO
Photographs by Stephen Shore
“Christopher Wool has a reputation for not talking much. He’s of the let-the-work-speak-for-itself school and rarely grants interviews, an aversion perhaps not altogether surprising for an artist who rose to prominence in the late 1980s playing with the hostile, slippery nature of the painted word. But on a gruelingly hot morning in September, Wool welcomes me to his studio in the far eastern blocks of New York’s East Village.” – Christopher Bollen

“In 1969 I was interested in how I could reduce the presence of visual conventions in my work. I wanted to get at something that felt more like an unmediated experience. I tried several approaches. One was to use conceptual frameworks that would eliminate some of my subjective decision-making. But, I approached “Los Angeles, CA, February 4, 1969” differently. By using virtually every picture I made that day, I was aiming at a kind of visual stream-of-consciousness series that challenged conventions of framing.” —Stephen Shore 2018
Stephen Shore: Stereographs
NEW YORK, 1974
In 1974, Stephen Shore purchased a Stereo Realist— a camera that created stereographic color transparencies, resulting in images that could be viewed in 3-D. Similar to nineteenth-century experimentation in stereo cards and the recently popularized View-Master toys, these images offer a simulacrum of three-dimensional space via the two-dimensional image. The thirty images presented exclusively in this limited-edition stereograph are the result of Shore’s engagement with the puzzle of how to most effectively translate the real world into a successful “3-D” image given the particulars of the technology. “I was interested in seeking out situations in which the camera was doing something different from how our eyes see things: reflections, windows, a shadow on a chain-link fence, a rug that seems to float off the ground — each scenario created this amazing sense of space.” Fifteen of the resulting images were shown in a 1975 exhibition at Light Gallery. This set of thirty images has only been seen publicly once before, at Shore’s 2017–18 MoMA survey.

My Novel Was Shaped by the Unforgettable
Way These Artists Saw America
By Randy Kennedy
“…Eventually, I began to inhabit specific pictures fully as settings, both in homage to Shore and because doing so grounded me more deeply in reality—and history—than half-remembered scraps of my own. A motel room where my character falls ill is—down to the Japanese wallpaper and gold brocade bedspread—the one rented and photographed by Shore in Room 316, Howard Johnson’s, Battle Creek, Michigan, July 6, 1973 (1973)…”
