Christopher Wood RSW incorporates oils, acrylic, collage and mixed media to create multi-layered, abstract compositions. His heightened use of colour, texture and strength of composition draws the viewer into the frame.
'The word which most readily comes to mind as I move through Christopher Wood’s paintings is 'visceral'. There is something deeply intuitive about these works; alternately insistent, lyrical, emphatic and searingly emotive. This is painting from the heart, in its purest form.'
