Christopher Wool and Laura Wood

With the painting the inspiration comes from the process of the work itself. Like music [making the work] is an emotional experience. It’s a visual language and it’s almost impossible to put words to it.[…]
With Jean-Michel [Basquiat] or Picasso, the fact that they could do it so easily is what makes the work, in the end, so great. They had absolute fearlessness. If you’re not fearless about changes, then you won’t progress.

My work blends familiar jewelry icons with unexpected materials and forms. I enjoy working within the format of adornment and creating work that challenges the idea of what jewelry can be. In my most recent series of work, I combine simple forms and pair them with repurposed jewelry, industrial materials, precious stones, and paper.
