Craig Wood: Catalogue Raisonné
This Catalogue Raisonné is the first published retrospective of British conceptual artist Craig Wood. This large-format paperback book covers over 30 years of Wood’s impressive oeuvre, starting in 1987 when he was studying Fine Art at Goldsmiths College of Art, London. The book is illustrated with over 500 images and features an essay by art critic and Reader of Fine Art at Goldsmiths Michael Archer, and an interview* with British artist Fiona Banner (aka The Vanity Press).
The book was launched at GS Artists alongside a selection of original artworks featured in this Catalogue Raisonné .
Graduating in 1989, Wood was part of the YBA movement, and his early exhibitions included Damien Hirst’s seminal Modern Medicine in 1990. He would later have commercial representation through galleries in London, Paris and Turin.
*This interview originally resulted from a GS Artists project in 2019- “Soup Talks” which invited Craig Wood and Fiona Banner for a studio visit exchange and extended conversation.
