Nikki Woods is a painter that makes expressive paintings of highly decorative and decadent landscapes, objects, and centerpieces where images and material merge in and out of states of visual and psychological slippage. Woods’ lush color palette, mixing of mediums, and painterly mark making creates visual sensations on her canvases. She received a BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art, is currently the director of Reinberger Gallery at CIA, and has her work in many private and public collections, including the Progressive Art Collection.
