Softback book, 108 pages, 100 colour illustrations, with introductory essay by Dr Richard Davey, Senior Research Fellow at Nottingham School of Art and Design, He [Wood] shows us the reality of both pigment and poetry, wandering the space between wonder and knowledge, the unnamed and named where mystery exists. Wood’s paintings offer us both poetry and prose; a world where monsters prowl the bedroom and tree branches fall as patterned shadows on the wall.
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.
