Best Of Still Life: Ali Wood

THE INCREDIBLE STILL LIFE ARTISTS YOU NEED TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION.

Vibrant, energetic and gestural, Ali Wood’s still lifes keep you coming back for more. Painting primarily with oils, her works are a mixture of texture and expressive mark making and are mostly painted alla prima (wet on wet) to maintain energy and spontaneity.

Prior to taking up art full time, Ali was clothing designer for her own label based in Western Australia. Now based in Sydney, her paintings are available at Fenton & Fenton in Melbourne and Paper Pear in New South Wales, as well as her own website.
