Painter, designer, sculptor, architect—the list of titles awarded to British artist Richard Woods is extensive and constantly overlapping. In 2002, Woods transformed a New York gallery space with an exaggerated use of historical patterns, architecture, and iconography in his installation Super Tudor. He combined patterns and prints from various periods to overtake floors and walls of the gallery's interior, using a Tudor-inspired façade to transform the building's exterior. This project, like many of Woods's endeavors, shaped an existing environment into a new reality, using cartoon-like decorative surfaces, mainly with hand-printed woodblock techniques. Woods has said that his vibrant color palette is inspired by his childhood memories of his parents' home in 1970s England, where he was surrounded by “plasticky” colors and garish, narrative wallpapers. Though best known for his architectural installations, Woods is also a distinguished painter and sculptor.
