John Wood starts to work by observing the world around him and using those observations to begin drawing, building up layers of marks and color. He watches for visual triggers that tell him to add more here and remove something there. He constantly reminds myself to trust in the process, knowing that when he is open to an honest dialogue with the emerging art, the art will lead him in the right direction. His finished work alludes to the world, but his real interests are the deep emotional and sensual qualities.
