We believe Christopher Wood is currently one of Scotland’s finest abstract artists with a range and dimension to his work that is outstanding. Whether in collages involving materials and textures, or in oils or acrylic in a variety of scales and tones, he intrigues and engages the viewer in a process of interpretation and analysis which engenders a real fascination with the work.
