Greg Wood is an Australian landscape artist who has been actively painting since the mid-90s. This has enabled him to live for a period in Tasmania, travel to Vietnam and Japan and undertake a residency in Brussels.
Wood is concerned with the void above the earth. Like all his works, painting shows no evidence of human habitation – we might be observing a primeval scene where humans have yet to evolve. Hence, the landscape is purposely obscured and often further abstracted by mist suspended somewhere between imagination and location.
With an extensive exhibition history including curated and solo exhibitions with Australian galleries, Wood's work has been included in several important Australian award exhibitions including the John Glover Prize, Tattersalls Prize, Fleurieu Peninsula Biennale Art Prize, Kate Derum Award and most recently winner of the John Leslie Art Prize 2022 .
