SIGNED by the artist
The Art & Craft of Richard Woods is a uniquely revealing and beautifully designed publication that surveys the full extent of the artist’s creativity from initial idea through to completed work.
Covering the last 12 years of Woods’s career, the book profiles a multitude of representative case studies. These studies provide insights into the production processes associated with the entire range of the artist’s output, including the interior and exterior installations for which he is best known, together with his paintings, sculptures, furniture, prints, fabrics and lighting.
In his introductory essay, Paul Bonaventura explores the artist’s approach to making, focusing on life in his busy studio. Thereafter each case study is contextualised in a series of short pieces of writing, ranging from personal commentaries and observations by the artist’s co-creatives, patrons and friends through to facsmiles of exhibition press releases, magazine reviews and news coverage.
Complementing the hugely successful monograph on the artist, which was co-published by Lund Humphries in 2006, The Art & Craft of Richard Woods is essential reading for all those interested in this innovative and multi-talented artist.
