New Blood Art Statement

Offering a ‘fly on the wall’ perspective, Wood treats his viewers to a rare and exquisitely unprescribed portrayal of ‘his Newcastle.’ Wood’s undeniable success is in capturing the essence of his subjects in all their glorious authenticity. Movement appears to bristle upon his canvases, whilst his manipulation of light and shade lends itself superbly to the delivery of a truly organic depiction of life. 

Rendered in oil paint, Wood describes how he will ‘layer, scrape and wipe areas of paintings,’ adding a tangible dimension to his work. He details how he underpins this practice with the desire to capture the mood of his subjects.

Sam Wood’s raw and impassioned work is comparable to a thunderstorm: immensely powerful and oddly tranquil…

Artist Statement

The themes my work are taken from everyday surroundings life and places, which mostly manifest through the people and architecture of my home city, Newcastle.

I work mainly in oil paint and realism is my main driving force, but while maintaining this, I feels as though it is very important to create mood and atmosphere through the work. I will layer, scrape and wipe areas of paintings to create areas of abstraction and realism.
