Matthew Wood

Originally a painter, Dallas-based artist Matthew “Woody” Wood first began exploring alternative mediums in the 1990s. Drawing inspiration from works that forego the inclusion of brushwork or human touch, Woody works with a rare vintage paper, Chroma Rama, in order to produce multidimensional works that eclipse the appearance of the artist’s hand in their creation. Utilizing an in-depth process of photographing pedestrians’ shadows and manipulating the resulting images, Woody created his own visual language of abstract forms to employ in his work.  Woody is currently an artist-in-residence at the Cedars Union in Dallas, TX.
