New and unseen works by contemporary Leeds-based artist Christopher P. Wood (b. 1961)

12 December 2012 - 23 March 2013

Christopher P. Wood brings traditional painting techniques and his abilities as skilled draughtsman together with an abstract, often expressionistic sensibility to create surreal, mysterious landscapes infused with animism, shamanic figures and an enigmatic collection of personal symbols.
