John Cheney Wood is one of the pre-eminent artists and educators of our time. He consistently challenged traditional photography often incorporating other mediums to his work. A master of process, he had the ability to work decisively across a variety of artistic forms with ease, from straight photography, collage, cliché verre, solarization, mixed media, offset lithography to drawing. Wood moved freely between conceptual and visual exploration, refusing to adhere to a single style.
