EUGENE WOOD

Eugene Wood is interested in trying to portray the glory manifested in the ordinary, to recapture the inner light infinite with significance. Finding beauty in those parts of the visual scene, which are generally taken for granted, always looking for, as Aldous Huxley wrote " The strangeness, the sinister and even infernal otherness that hides in familiar things." By isolating these familiar things, they can become absolutized, heightened by the isolation and unrelatedness to preaternatural intensity.
