Neil Wood is a professional sculptor and fine artist with many years of experience lecturing in fine art and sculpture at institutions in the UK. He has worked in various settings; in education, as artist-in-residence and visiting lecturer, alongside his practice producing sculpture for exhibition and public commissions.

 

Employing a modernist methodology to explore the human condition in the 21st century, Neil uses the figure as a vehicle to experiment with materials and visual language. He attempts to express ideas about the world we inhabit and the nature of human experience and relationships.  Recent work explores social and political injustices inflicted on the underprivileged and displaced worldwide.
