"Sometimes she walks through the village in her
little red dress
all absorbed in restraining herself,
and yet, despite herself, she seems to move
according to the rhythm of her life to come.
She runs a bit, hesitates, stops,
and, all while dreaming, shakes her head
for or against.
Then she dances a few steps
that she invents and forgets,
no doubt finding out that life
moves on too fast.
It's not so much that she steps out
of the small body enclosing her,
but that all she carries in herself
frolics and ferments.
It's this dress that she'll remember
later in a sweet surrender;
when her whole life is full of risks,
the little red dress will always seem right." -

Featured in our 'Warhol Wool Guyton' exhibition this past winter, Christopher Wool's work, 'Untitled,' 2001 fuses silkscreen with digital technologies. The dense splatters, smears, and sinuous traceries in this piece resemble the traditional abstract mark-making of a previous generation, which undermines the technical innovations involved in this work's creation. Glenn O'Brien wrote about the artist, "Wool’s world is built on the ruins of abstraction." #ChristopherWool#Warhol#WadeGuyton
