When Ali Woods sculpts she insists we see the work as a whole. There are no parts of her work that are isolated. In this, her work reflects a world of enmeshed, competing interests, often at odds with each other. The resulting cacophony becomes impossible to visually separate into its basic materials, much like a world in which purity is the greatest illusion.

Sculpture

Watching Alison Woods’s transition from meticulous, rigorous and incredibly detailed  two-dimensional work to these airy, light, loose, and ghost-like sculptures made of found materials certainly  spoke to me in the first place! These loose and playful forms  were first  created  in Greece  for a site-specific project  and have continuously evolved upon her return to her country.
