Ann Wood continues her transformation of plain paper into juicy-looking fruits and verdant vegetables. Using careful layers of paint, the artist captures the varied colors and textures of fuzzy peaches, russeted apples, soil-topped beets, and shiny citrus. In a statement on her website, Wood describes her work as “mixed media portraits and theatrical tableaus of mysterious beauty and solace whose identity is grounded in the timeless aesthetic and ethic of rural America.”
