Working in oil stick on panel, Wood’s images betray a tension between the known world and that of the imagination. These connections are simultaneously tender and harrowing, yet always seemingly necessary. Do we control the natural world or does it control us, and how do our individual negotiations affect and transform the broader cultural tapestry?
An opening reception for Handell and Wood will take place on Thursday, August 9, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The exhibition will remain on view until September 6, 2012.
