Eleanor Wood makes delicate profound mixed media work on paper that refers greatly to her process, but in the end is pure poetry. Wood makes art that is reminiscent of scientific close-ups of skin and bark, sewn together and stained. Sewn with what and stained by what? These are other-worldly quiet scholarly studies of materials layered and superimposed using waxed paper, wax colored with oil bar; embossed-like compositions encased and displayed for our consideration.
Wood lives in both California and the United Kingdom and her exhibit record indicates this with solo and group exhibits in Britain, The Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Russia, Latvia, Australia, and the United States. Exhibitions of note in the US are: Huntington Beach Art Center, Washington University in Seattle and CSU Stanislaus in Turlock, CA. Her work can be found in the collections of The Progressive Art Collection, The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Achenback Foundation for the Graphic Arts, The Crocker Art Museum, Sears Merchandising Group, Chicago; Bass Brewery, London; The Arts Council of Great Britain; Chelsea School of Art, UK; and Northern Arts, UK, among others.
