Playful, wondrous timepieces from the creative mind of Roger Wood.
Whether it’s a curious timepiece or a unique assemblage, Ron Wood thrives on working with an immeasurable array of findings from the tarnished and forgotten to the odd or intriguing. He is a devoted collector of usual and unusual objects with one thing in common: a history.
The source of his inspiration lies in the hundreds of curiously labeled drawers and boxes brimming with artifacts of all description that line the shelves of his Toronto studio. Wood orchestrates his artistic arrangements from this myriad of treasures until the precise moment that it feels right. Then he quickly glues down all the components “so they can’t escape.”
From Roger’s explorations emerge timepieces that take flight on cherubic wings, float and sway on fine wires, or appear frozen mid-explosion with flying springs and cogs that bounce at the touch.
Roger’s merging of objects and ideas has garnered critical acclaim across North America.
