Featured Artist: \; New W ork by Michael Freitas Wood\, &ldquo\;Moment of Change&rdquo\;

\n

 \;

\n

Michael Freitas Wood is one of the more adventurous gr idmeisters around\, spinning brilliant variations on a theme in his paintin gs and painted objects using unconventional mediums\, including pigmented p laster and fiberglass grounds. \; Wood&rsquo\;s paintings are a superch arged\, dizzyingly colorful and complex. \; Critic John Carver said &ld quo\;it&rsquo\;s like you put the whole last century of abstraction in the blender and pressed play\, then sent it via internet teletransport to the c enter of your brain.&rdquo\;
