“The Ottoman Front: The Great War in the Middle East”

In 2006 Keith Wood started using the “encaustic” medium (pigmented molten wax.)  Encaustic is light – a key element of Wood’s work. Just as a jazz musician dialogues with his instrument, creating a work of art involves an intense dialogue with the work.
