Mt. Wilson (Pozzo’s Twilight)

This diptych is part of a series of paintings by the artist that uses brushstrokes and spare gestures to depict Mt. Wilson—a peak identifiable from all over Los Angeles, where the artist lives. Although informed by modernist artists and literary figures, the artist has a unique approach to exploring abstraction; the artist repeatedly paints commonplace subjects that occupy the artist's everyday life. Woll is also devoted to repainting his prior compositions—the art studio’s version of a game of telephone. This practice allows the artist to explore the formal aspects of painting and create an identifiable style.
