Richard Woods: Building Landscapes

Hovedstaden, Copenhagen, 03/31/2017 - 05/20/2017

65a Bredgade, st. th.


We are delighted to announce Building Landscapes a solo show by British artist Richard Woods.

The first show David Risley made at Zwemmer Gallery, London, 17 years ago, was Logo no.13, Richard Woods' first floor work (see below). For his show in Copenhagen, Woods is making an immersive full gallery installation. Birch trees, woodblock printed life size cover the gallery walls. Hills, clad in the artists signature wood panelled pattern, rise from the floor. Another room is filled with a forest of comic looking totem sculptures. Twenty small, framed landscape paintings form a horizon line, running the length of a wall. In Building Landscapes, the artist takes the viewer through a series of modes of representation of landscape. Landscape as a wraparound, immersive image. As a construction to be climbed over and laid on. As a sculptural field to be navigated. As contained, painted image. These small paintings, which Woods has named, Hand Held Landscapes, recall medieval panel paintings, made to be held and used in private devotion. Moments of private contemplation, interior, civilized, away from the wildness of the forest in the next room.
