PAUL WOOD is an English sculptor living in Germany. He has previously lived in various parts of England, and for ten years on the Greek island of Kerkyra (Corfu), where he lived above the nudist beach at Myrtiotissa (Did we really need to know that?, Ed). He carves in both wood and stone, preferring to find local materials with a distinctive character. He often uses recycled or found materials. His sculptures are mainly figurative, curvaceous, sensuous, even erotic in nature, exploring the tactile beauty of the human body. He believes that the creation of beauty for its own sake is an act of rebellion against the cold, aggressive, acquisitive greed that currently dominates the world. For more see “www.paul-wood.de“.
