In her painting, Robotic Leftovers of Chaotic Love Wars, Wood shows us the smoldering aftermath of some exotic explosion with fires, dirt, and grime. There may even be some birds flying out of an elusive tavern of hell. She straps us in with cutting geometric lines and then she lets us fall into a dark smoldering pit. Wood uses a number of medias such as acrylic, gouache, ink, pastel, charcoal, graphite, colored pencils, and marker which creates a world of unique character and charm.

Woods’ sculptures are like mythical creatures or submarine life forms with clear geometries and free form appendages in equal number. Created from objects the artist discovered in the streets of Berlin, her part time home, the work is built from the PVC legacies of our civilization.
