FEATURE ARTIST | GREG WOOD
Greg Wood seeks an emotional response to his paintings, hence, the landscape is purposely obscured and often further abstracted by mist suspended somewhere between imagination and location.
Influenced by growing up amongst a family of artists, Greg Wood has been an active landscape painter since the mid-90s. This has enabled him to live for a period in Tasmania, travel to Vietnam and Japan and undertake a residency in Brussels. Wood’s work has been included in several important Australian award exhibitions including ;
the John Glover, Tattersalls Prize
the Fleurieu Peninsula Biennale Art Prize
and the Kate Derum Award.
Wood has an extensive exhibition history including curated and solo exhibitions at Australian Galleries (Melbourne), Poimena Gallery (Launceston), West Space (Melbourne), James Makin Gallery (Melbourne) and Stockroom (Kyneton) and his recent artist-in-residence in Brussels culminated in an exhibition at Superdeals, (Brussels). Wood’s work is part of important private and public collections, including the Joyce Nissan and Peter Mac Art Collections.
