Laura Wood - artist portrait


Laura Wood was born in Ontario, Canada and received her BFA at the University of Waterloo. Today, Wood lives and works in Toronto, Ontario.

Laura's work is an investigation into image and perception, touching on the ambiguity of texts - photographic, painterly or mnemonic, creating an encounter open to interpretation. Laura uses glazing techniques, creating layers which capture a rich glow of light and a depth of colour.

Laura's work has been exhibited across Canada, in Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary, and is included in many collections such as the Four Seasons Hotel, Toronto & Dubai; The St. Regis Hotel, San FranciscoThe Ritz-Carlton, Abu Dhabi; and Printemps Department Store, Paris.
