Color, Light, Motion. Episode 5: John Hood

JOHN HOOD is a non-objective painter of meditative forms on highly textured, mixed-media surfaces, heavily inspired by his lifelong affair with the sea. Raised in Los Angeles, his artistic journey began after he moved to the mid-west in the early 1980s, where academic studies initially took him in the direction of experimental filmmaking.

Over the past seven years, Hood has developed an intimate knowledge of the David Bermant Foundation Collection leading more than 150 tours. His personal observations of the viewers’ reactions to experiencing the artwork brings a deep insight into to the richness of the collection and its relevance to the art world.
