Craig Martin Wood (Denmark) Residence: April 2020

Craig Martin Wood is predominantly a self-taught multi disciplinary artist working within visual arts and sound. After completing some courses including a Diploma in Fine Arts, he focused mainly on drawing, painting and playing the drums with various acts.

 

During the past six years Wood moved into curating and teaching workshops after a period of focusing primarily on printmaking, whilst simultaneously teaching himself various instruments for sound recording projects under the name Henry the Rabbit.

 

Many exhibitions and concerts have been made under the pseudonym Henry the Rabbit. Religious symbolism, the occult, folk and outsider art play a large part informing the imagery with influences in Eastern and Western art history and printmaking.

 

At Arts itoya, the project intended will include Japanese woodblock printing influences, from traditional Mokuhanga and Sōsaku-hanga movements whilst incorporating his own roots and visual obsessions. Bringing these elements together using the method of linoleum printmaking, the intention is to allow the materials to be dictated by the studio, their environment, and any unknown elements that might dictate the final pieces.

<アーティスト・イン・レジデンス施設運営について>
糸島・武雄校においては、普段、海外アーティストの受け入れを行っておりますが、3月から当面の間は新規の受け入れは停止しております。現在、数名のアーティストが滞在中ですが、それらの方は、新型コロナウイルスが日本で感染拡大するよりも前に入国し、その後一ヶ月以上の滞在が既に過ぎている健康な人たちです。プログラムの終了に伴い、今後随時帰国となります。
各国間での入国禁止措置が解除となってから、状況をみてレジデンスプログラムも慎重に検討して再開を準備して参りますが、現在は新規に受け入れを行っておりませんので、海外からの感染がスタジオ運営で生じることはありません。
