Alan Wood was born in 1935 in England. He moved to Canada in 1971 and
settled in BC in 1974. His interest in the dynamics of light and colour of the
ocean, beach, forest and sky has dominated his work. In 1983 he gained
international recognition for taking his painting directly into the landscape
with his "Ranch" creation, an outdoor environmental work. This
320-acre painted construction built in the foothills of the Alberta Rockies was
a monumental exploration of colour and form. He has continued to work with
constructions of wood, canvas and paint around "Ranch", rock and
waterfall themes. He is a prolific artist who has received international
acclaim and has participated in many group and solo exhibitions in Great
Britain, Europe, Canada, the United States and Australia.
