Jack Wood makes art layer by layer, creating planes of depth like a Looney Toons landscape gone rogue. Each vibrant gradient is a new shape and a new texture fitted exactly in place in its patchwork landscape. Jack cuts up his prints, paintings, and warm memories layering them with joyful color and a healthy sprinkling of whichever eternal question pops up in the process.
