For his latest solo show, Dear Olivia … Craig Wood presents striking new works which range from large-scale sculptural installation and video projection, to delicate paper necklaces and painted maps. Running throughout the exhibition are threads of communication, the individual and the multitude, nationalism and shifting power structures.

About

Wood’s Mapping works offer geo-political worlds where whole continents are vanished beneath the seas, countries are upended from their usual coordinates, or the earth’s surface is disrupted.  His Transplant installations, both startling and humorous, reference dominant global issues: the dislocation of communities worldwide through urbanization and mass migration. In the artwork, Dear Olivia… the artist moves from a world-view to focus on the voice of the individual, unseen and apparently unreachable.

Originally from Scotland, Craig Wood has been based in South West Wales for 25 years. He exhibits widely across the UK and abroad, and also curates and writes. Craig Wood lectures at UWTSD, Swansea Campus.
