Chris's mystic golf greens were the result of a recent holiday in Cornwall. 'I was ill a couple of weeks ago, absolutely exhausted and unable to paint, so l went to Cornwall (Bude by the sea) and stayed with my kids. We had a place overlooking a golf course with long distanced sea views. My daughter’s partner is a scratch golfer and writes for golf monthly. Apparently the highest ‘par’ for any hole in the world is 7 on a course in Korea. This intrigued me and l wondered whether a golf course could take on mythic proportions… On my return I painted The Par 8.'
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.
