Brian Wood is a painter working with multiple media in New York City and East Chatham, NY. His paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, films, and books are exhibited internationally and are held in many private and public collections. Wood is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC; the Ludwig Museum in Cologne; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Houston Museum of Fine Arts; the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, TX; the New York Public Library: the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Ontario; the Davis Museum, Wellesley; the Tampa Museum of Art; Asheville Art Museum, NC; the Montreal Museum of Fine Art; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Montreal; The Canada Council Art Bank; Concordia Art Gallery, Montreal; the Museum of Modern Art in Prague; and many others. 

Wood's awards include the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, Rome Prize finalist in 2019, the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, the New York Foundation for the Arts Grant, numerous Canada Council Grants including the prestigious "A" Grant, the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship.

Brian Wood works primarily with painting and graphite or ink drawing. Throughout his career, Wood has been immersed in questions about consciousness and ontology, the mystery of intense images arising to awareness and being, and their complex relationship with and away from time. Pursuing this inquiry into the tensile nature of time and space, he has explored many media and is accomplished in painting, drawing, photography, film, print-making, and cross-bred hybrids. Each medium generates different yet complex relationships to time and radically different experiences of space/form. All Wood’s images are connected by the daemon driving their emergence, but his curiosity and extensive investigation into different media, each with its own concrete and metaphorical differences, both perceptual and psychic, have contributed to the particular experience of Wood’s current paintings.

As described by Holland Cotter in his review in The New York Times (3/14/14) of Brian Wood’s solo exhibition Enceinte, “…[Wood] creates a kind of Symbolist world in which emerging into life and being devoured by it are part of the same inexorable process. As in the early work by Georgia O’Keeffe and Arthur Dove, the erotic and the spiritual are of a piece.”

Born and raised on the prairies of northern Saskatchewan, Wood's early imaginative experience was formed in harsh land, severe weather, and the life and death cycles of animals, crops, and wilderness. Wood's childhood on the farm, his absorption in nature, books, playing piano, and his later studies in physics and mathematics combine with his fascination and close attention to the shifting boundaries of body, sexuality, and awareness itself. From these inquiries, his close and active participation with arising inner images and perception, and his sense that the conventional separation of inner and outer worlds is actually an illusion, come the form and obsessions of his work.
