Sylvester Fine Art is delighted to present an exhibition of paintings by the artist Christopher P Wood. Launching on Saturday 16 January 2016, the show will present Wood’s vision of “an earthly paradise”.
Wood is a landscape artist who looks beyond the obvious and presents a visualisation that speaks of a reality, rooted in the spiritual realm. As Laura Gascoigne of The Spectator wrote: “Fantasy, as an ingredient of visual art, has fared badly under modernism and post-modernism……But those like me who still believe in make believe - who like to stand in front of pictures and dream - can take hope from this work.” Wood’s landscapes bring forth imagined worlds that are built on ancient foundations which have clearly been informed by his place of birth and where he lives to this day; Leeds. The endless skies and dramatic natural landscapes of Yorkshire can be found somewhere between Wood’s fantasy and reality.
Wood’s paintings demonstrate a skill and craft that has been honed over the years and he continues to present us with paintings that are honest. As Ian Skelly pointed out, “They invite a journey to be made and offer communion with the miracle of wonders we call Creation. Questions will find their answers in the quiet contemplation of them. For when this painter paints his landscapes, he paints of the marvels.”
The artist Alan Davie once said of Wood’s paintings: “….you are positively one of the greats of the art world today in this country. I find your images Magical”.
The magic starts on Saturday 16 January 2016 and will continue until 14 February 2016 and prices for the paintings start from £1,500.
