Chris Wood’s medium is light. She uses a range of high and low-tech optical materials to harness patterns of light that suggest ephemeral glimpsed moments in the natural world.
Her sculptures are simple arrangements creating kinetic patterns in response to the environments in which they are placed. Her work brings a wistful romanticism to a minimalist aesthetic. Chris Wood orders the accidental and makes us reflect on the experience of seeing.
After studying Furniture Design at Middlesex University in the mid 1980s. She then went on to study glass at the Royal College of Art, where she worked on architectural scale projects dealing with light and space.
