Ali Wood is a fine art graduate and former clothing designer who finds inspiration in the landscape surrounding her farm in Braidwood, in the Southern Tablelands. A keen gardener, Wood finds the flowers evolving in her garden as the seasons wax and wane inspiration, for her bold, colourful works
In this new body of work Ali Wood draws inspiration from the Dutch and Flemish Masters of the Golden Age. Ali’s evocative and rather spectral pieces stem from the cropped and magnified images of still lives from this period. In adapting these masterworks Ali employs her typical chromatic and gestural energy to portray luscious and life affirming imagery.
These large-scale works maintain a baroque quality using opulent dark backgrounds and a luscious palette. Each piece is richly hued and textured with drips, runs and a juxtaposition of contrasting elements. The result is a sense of energy, movement and drama.
