About

Chris Wood uses a range of high and low-tech optical materials to harness patterns of light that suggest ephemeral glimpses of moments in the natural world. Her minimalist sculptures are simple arrangements creating kinetic patterns in response to the environments in which they are placed.

The artist uses a material called dichroic (meaning “two color”) acrylic, which was developed by NASA in the 1950's. Dichroic acrylic has a special optical coating meant to reflect certain wavelengths of light while letting others through, creating beautiful projections of light and color depending on the environment in which the artwork is placed.

This 30 inch by 16 inch sculptural artwork is created with meticulous attention to light and shape. Dichroic acrylic is fastened to the white fabricated aluminum panel in patterns that change depending on the light. This artwork is signed by Wood on the back of the aluminum panel. It can be installed vertically as well as horizontally. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and International shipping are available. This artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery.

Wood's kinetic artworks change depending on the environment in which they are placed. Under different lighting circumstances, her work can project varying colorful shapes and patterns. This artwork can be hung in any direction, allowing it to bend and filter light in unique and beautiful ways.

Chris Wood was born in 1954 in Newcastle. Wood studied furniture design at Middlesex University in London before switching her focus to glass at the Royal College of Art, where she worked on architectural scale projects dealing with light and space.

Her work is represented in a number of private collections worldwide as well as the Shanghai Museum of Glass. Corporate collectors include Fendi Fashion House, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Rosie Maternity Hospital, Premier Inn Hotel, and a Scandinavian cruise ship. Artplex Gallery has exhibited Chris Wood artworks in Los Angeles since 2019, presenting her impressive works to an international collector base around the globe.
