Denise Bibro Fine Art, in Chelsea, NYC is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition of New York artist, Susan Woods, Drawing with Metal, running October 11 – November 10, 2018.

Woods’ primary focus throughout her extensive career has been sculpture and functional sculptural art. Recently she has also completed a body of impactful, autobiographical based drawings.

Woods’ sculpture and drawings share a common force. Her sculpture, although often rooted in an idea or observation, are still spontaneous and organic. Their beginnings do not necessarily dictate their endings. Her works, however spontaneous, are carefully crafted. Her metal works are three-dimensional drawings on the surface, but they are also intricate compositions packed with multi-directions. The juxtaposed geometric and organic forms in these works suggest interesting compositions of space and line. The trajectory of each composition is multifaceted. The interplay of black and white creates depth. They evoke three dimensionalities of form and space.

Her body of drawings, although often importing the same modus operandi as her sculptures, is more autobiographical. There are references to happenings and natural landscapes. The compositions are more biomorphic, flowing in line and demonstrating rich shading to define the composition and nuance.

Woods has had numerous exhibitions. Among her solo shows are 479 Gallery in Philadelphia, PA and The Seaport Museum, Salem, MA. She has also exhibited at The W Hotels, Chicago International Art Exposition & The Jayson Gallery, Chicago, IL, The Vera Redmond Gallery, The Woodmere Museum and The Nexus Foundation for Today’s Art in Philadelphia, PA and The Sculpture Center, NYC. Her works have been acquired by several selected public and private collections including Newark Liberty International Airport, NJ, PLC Arabia, Saudi Arabia, Lincoln Center Film Society Café, New York, NY, H. H. Shekh Suroor Bin Mohammad Al Nahyan, The Etihad Tower-Abu Dhabi, UAE, Aveda-NYC & Washington, D.C., Ann Taylor-New York, NYC, W-Hotels, Union Square, NYC, Silver Jet Airlines, VIP Lounge-Newark, Airport, NJ, Cartier & Fortuni, NYC, AC Hotel in Minneapolis, MN to name a few. She has been featured in many publications including Interior Design Magazine, The New York Times, Metropolis, NYC, Crain’s, The New York Sun, The New York Daily News, Metropolitan Home, Surface and The Dallas Morning News.

Woods studied at the Montserrat School of Visual Art, Beverly, MA; The Boston Museum College of Art & Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, MA; The Sculpture Center & National School of Design, NYC and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA.
