While Keith Wood seldom lets the world influence his work, he admits that each of his paintings represents a sum total of his life experience to date.
As much as Wood tries not to let his surroundings influence his art form, he takes many cues from the musical genre of jazz. Much like jazz music, Wood’s art has an underlying element of structure, in his consistent colour palette and grid-like format. The dominant elements, though, are the strong notes of improvisation. The result is an intriguing, endlessly interesting body of work – visual music.
