Kay Wood (WA)

Wood’s recent works continues her interest in ontology, especially that of art objects.  Paintings are combined in arrangements that also include a variety of readymade and handcrafted things.  There are evident imperfections, irregularities,  flawed techniques and mundane materials sitting askew.  

This continuation of dialogue with the world of things through her practice is Wood’s feeling that we are bound by our condition to try to engage with the world and understand it but, paradoxically, this is actually not possible – we do not own things, we do not actually know them – despite the names and function we give them.  All her works can be seen as quasi independent entities exhibiting a certain inwardness that withdraws behind the visible qualities and cannot be explained.

Wood's artistic influences range from Jean-Simeon Chardin, to Giorgio Morandi, Thomas Nozkowski, Gunter Forg, Jessica Stockholder and Amy Sillman (to name a few). Kay Wood studied at Sydney College of the Arts and has a BVA (Hons) and an MVA. She also has a BA (Hons) from Deakin University. Prior to her return to Perth in 2005 Kay had had fourteen solo shows and participated in numerous group exhibitions.
