Mark Scott Wood's work often explores elements of obsession. Whether this is through the process of making or the nature of what it is to be obsessed. This may result in work that has been painstakingly created such as hair threaded into canvas, work involving multiple layers of paint or work reflecting perhaps the idea of unrequited love.

For Tainted Love he is exploring the nature of bands and their fans with two works dedicated to two different bands, 30 Seconds to Mars and My Chemical Romance, under the working title of The Battle of the Band Shrines. During the build up to the exhibition the fans of these bands, The Echelon and The MCRmy, will be invited to cast their vote and ultimately determine which shrine will make it into the exhibition.


Mark Scott Wood studied at Norwich School of Art and Design, and Byam Shaw School of Art, London and lives and works in London. Previous exhibitions include Attack the Block Party, Latitude Festival, Suffolk; 2Wet, Stew Gallery, Norwich; Shame, The Residence Gallery, London; Late Shift, The National Portrait Gallery, London.
