Roger Wood is a story teller. His new all white assemblages are elaborate stages on which silent dramas unfold. The stories are familiar yet elusive, the settings cluttered with clues and oblique stage directions, acted out by a cast of everyman and woman. Wood borrows from a history of three dimensional collage, alluding to such giants as Joseph Cornell and Louise Nevelson while at the same time adding a theatrical dimension to these small built worlds. There is something powerful and intangible in their quiet, the force of a message delivered not with a shout but with a whisper.
