Chris N Wood (born Suffolk UK 1952-) painter, printmaker, illustrator, sculptor, designer
Chris Wood, is a highly skilled Fine Artist. He lives and works on the South Coast UK operating from a studio, which is part of a former Methodist Chapel. He is a story teller – his core themes are seascape/ landscape and human.
His paintings are informed by a lifelong fascination with the sea: how it moves, its power, shapes and ever-changing forms, the weather, the light, the colours, shapes and textures. He owns a classic wooden yacht, which, over the years, he has painstakingly restored.
Process is fundamental to Chris’ work, which is often the result of hundreds of hours of research, notes, conversations, drawings and colour studies. He makes observational studies, field trips, takes photographs and gathers information from libraries and the internet.
