      Desta Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition, “Traces” work by John W Wood. Join Us for Artist Reception Saturday, March 23rd,
      5:00pm – 7:00pm

      Featured Artist:

      John W Wood’s beautiful abstract imagery is the culmination of a lifetime of work in art. His current work uses the human form and landscape as starting points to build up layers of line, form and color in graphite, crayon, oil pastel and enamel. He strives to be as open and engaged as possible with the developing image, trusting that the art will lead him in the right direction. In the end, the work alludes to the real world only symbolically, but John is much more interested in the emotional and sensual qualities that emerge rather than any recognizable forms.

      Mr. Wood began his education in Utah and earned an MFA degree in painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. He has lived and worked in New York City as well as Florida and Utah before moving to the Bay Area where he has lived and painted for more than 20 years. Public, corporate and private collectors nationwide have acquired his work.
