About the Artist

Nancy Wood's desire to pursue art more seriously evolved over time, having initially studied biology in college and only later attending art school. The intersection of art and science is interesting and there are many artists who explore the connections between the two disciplines. Visually, Nancy is attracted to pattern in nature and the underlying structure of organic form, in particular form mapped mathematically applying the principles of geometry and chaos. Remnants of chaos imagery, protein structures, patterns from nature, and geometry, are combined to evoke a new visual space.
