From the publisher (for "Road"): "Road is an artist’s book composed from a series photographs that Christopher Wool shot between 2015 and 2017. Dust roads, gravel roads, partly overgrown or full of tire tracks, through desert and fields of rocks, through sparse woods and along precipices. Only seldom does a fork in the road offer a choice of which way to go, and though the place always changes from one shot to the next, it still feels like one long road traveled under the clear light of the Texas sun."
From the publisher (for "Westtexaspsychosculpture"): "This artist’s book comprises photographs Christopher Wool made between 2008 and 2017 in the surroundings of Marfa in West Texas. Pictures of found situations: of backyard debris and improvised storage solutions, stray animals and strange constructions that once must have made sense but now appear undecipherable. Things set adrift and excerpts from the landscape that appear almost like sculpture for the split second of the open lens."
