Christopher Wool is best known for his large black paintings of stenciled letters on white canvas. Still working in a monochromatic color palette, Wool creates tension and depth in She Smiles for the Camera by layering, erasing, and obliterating using bold brush stokes and an almost handwritten line. Christopher Wool has shown extensively around the world and has been shown in Museums such as, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He is currently represented by Gagosian in New York city.
