New York, NY

Jack Shainman Gallery, New York

Education includes:

Manhattan College BS, New York
School of Visual Arts, New York

Wood, an emerging artist, is a painter who uses nontraditional tools to apply oil and wax onto the canvas. Wood’s meticulous work is frequently inspired by photographic interpretations of light. His work is consistent, almost never deviating from the monochromatic biomorphic abstraction parameters that he set for himself early in his career.

His work is part of museum collections in several states including New York, Texas, California, Hawaii, Virginia, New Jersey and North Carolina.
