Linda Wood, born in 1944, studied art at Leeds City College. As a result of illness I had to give up my job with a computer software company, this was my chance to pursue my artistic ambitions. Inspired by my son’s work with the homeless in 1992 when he was doing a degree in photography, I auctioned a painting to raise funds for St. George’s crypt. One of my paintings, among others, was of a man called Danny. His picture was seen by a nun who had known him and I found out that he had since died in an old armchair in the centre of Leeds.
Danny became the catalyst for future exhibitions to raise money for charity. Since the course in fine art at college, a group of us still paint together every week and are known as The Art Factory. Mainly specialising in oil paintings, I am particularly drawn to the application of texture to my work. My interest is in surfaces, their formats and the complexities of light upon them. “ The mind is the real instrument of sight and observation. The eye acts as a sort of vessel receiving and transmitting the visible portion of the consciousness”. PLINY.
