John Hurrell, editor of EyeContact the leading critical visual arts journal in New Zealand says of Robert Hood's work: "Certainly Hood is rapidly developing a national profile as a Canterbury artist, and it wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that he’s one of the most interesting younger artists currently practicing in New Zealand. Christchurch born and raised, he has had numerous group and solo shows that often seem to pass under the radar, was the Olivia Spencer-Bower Artist in Residence in 2007, exhibited with the Fourth Auckland Triennial in 2009, received the Sir Robertson Stewart Scholarship in 2011 and was the only Canterbury artist represented in the Prospect survey at City Gallery, Wellington the same year.
