Image description: A horizontal painting by Jack Arthur Wood Jr. in which pieces of paper, linen, cotton, and a sweater are collaged to loosely form a landscape. The composition is framed by a cloud of dark blackish-blue paint and fiber, creating the feeling of peering through a cave. Beyond the dark frame, hundreds of paper strips are collaged in intricate rows, resembling fields of long grass. In the distance, the sky is collaged in radiating swirls of light orange, blue, and peach.
