Kristine Woods

Visual Arts, 2008

Kristine Woods’ work is informed by three interlinking experiences – her history in performance, her teaching, and through her work as a Gynecological Teaching Associate. All three contribute in complex and subtle ways to Woods’ works with form, texture, space and the poetics of materiality. Woods’ collaborative history includes projects with Gregg Bordowitz, Susie Brandt, Sharon Hayes and Christopher Whittey. Currently Woods is working alone in the studio primarily on sculptural forms supported by drawing, reading, weaving and writing. The concerns of the current work are rudimentary—standing, containing, struggling—and are fundamentally reliant on the properties of materials: their physical characteristics and their vernacular. Woods received her BA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She lives and works in Brooklyn and teaches at The Maryland Institute College of Art.
