About Roger Wood

Roger Wood

(b.1942, Fredericton, NB) Roger Wood is a self-taught artist who lives and works in a former flower shop in Hamilton, Ontario. A regular at yard sales and flea markets, he collects odd, forlorn, mysterious, intriguing, usually weathered artifacts - things with a history. There are several hundred boxes and drawers now, brimming with found objects. Nothing is safe or sacred - his entire studio/home and even his garden have become a large environmental assemblage. He specializes in eccentric clocks that he crafts one at a time. Their whimsical nature reflects his belief in the importance of play and childlike wonder in a world that is too often serious and too seemingly chaotic
