Wood has commented on how the direct mark-marking of etching informs his approach to painting, with the print acting as both study for and evolution of his canvases.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
For “Pattern Couch Interior with Mar Vista View,” Wood started a related painting in his Los Angeles studio shortly before traveling to New York to begin the print project. Working in monochrome, using the softground technique, he built up the myriad patterns and textures of the image using a variety of marks and subtle tonal variation, through repeated etchings of the plate. The result is an image which, in Wood’s distinctive manner, shimmers between flatness and depth, interior and landscape, with surfaces containing mise-en-abyme scenes within themselves. Upon returning to the painting, Wood used the print as a reference to develop the patterning on a larger scale.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
“Most of the time when I’m making a painting, I’m either working from a photo or I’m working from a drawing. In this case, instead of using a drawing, I used an etching. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I try to take things that I learn in printmaking and try to make the paintings better, or take the language from printmaking into painting, from drawing into painting, from drawing into printmaking, from printmaking into painting — they’re all connected in a circle.”⁠⠀
