Christopher T. Wood named an artist-in-residence in Milwaukee

Christopher T. Wood, adjunct instructor of art, has been named the 13th artist-in-residence at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee. Wood, a Milwaukee-based pataphysical illustrator, will work in hotel’s lobby-level Artist Studio for one year beginning April 1.

By applying unique processes he has developed, Wood creates drawings consisting of powdered graphite and exquisite shading that form distinct creations. He plans to draw a new piece each day that will eventually become a set of drawings, each serving as an extension of the other. The drawings may overlap, enhance or repeat to further showcase the experiences felt at that particular point in time. Wood’s work has been on display in exhibitions around the globe.

Currently, his pieces can be seen at Portrait Society Gallery in Milwaukee as well as in the Wisconsin Artists Biennial 2022 exhibition at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend.
