Wood's work presents a magical world, inhabited by mystic symbols and strange creatures that speak of a hidden reality beyond our grasp.

In these paintings a bold gesso ground is laid over the paper, an extremely difficult and time-consuming process, before runs of paint are poured over the surface to create strange, ethereal cloud-like shapes. Figures in the foreground are then carefully worked in, resulting in images of disarming depth and arresting colour.
Christopher P Wood portraitBorn in Leeds in 1961, Christopher P. Wood is a painter and printmaker of atmospheric and enigmatic imagery. He gained a master’s degree in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art in 1986 and has consistently had successful exhibitions in the UK and abroad. His work is held in numerous public and private collections including Harrogate Art Gallery, Leeds City Council and the Unilever Collection.

Wood’s work features magical, symbolic figures and signs, what the artist calls an exploration of the interior world of the imagination. He spends a great deal of time priming his canvases, often four times over, and builds his pictures in such a way that once begun each must be finished in a single sitting, an emotionally draining task to say the least.
