The artwork of artist, Katherine Wood, can best be described as ‘abstract imaginings’ which stride the divide between traditional landscape and contemporary abstraction.
Katherine’s canvases are a battleground of manipulated and scraped textures that reflect a powerful energy with paint. The landscapes are abstracts of her imagination that are representative of no specific time frame, place or reality but rather a general energy or spirit of place and time. This allows ones own imagination and interpretation to come into play.
Having studied Fine Art at Stellenbosch University, Katherine studied paint techniques in both Scotland and Australia in 1999 and 2000 and moved back to South Africa to paint professionally. In 2004 she and her husband moved to Knysna and opened her signature gallery, Katherine Wood Fine Art on Thesen Island. With her husband, Duncan, as her full time agent and business partner, they have had numerous local and international exhibitions with agents based in Cape Town, Jhb, Durban, Dubai, New York, Brisbane and The Gold Coast, Australia.
