Eve Woods’ practice is concerned with the deep structure of social phenomena. This practice is focused especially in relation to femality, anxiety (as a society) and the internet. Overarching themes of information; it’s perversion and uses in a hyper-connected world, animalism and ethics bleed through these overlapping spheres of interest. Important to these thought patterns and especially evident in the aesthetics of the work is the focus on ideas of myth, urban legend and pseudoscience.
A painter primarily she is interested in composition, repetition, pattern and punk (anti-) aesthetics. Her palette swings from brash contrasting strokes to subtle layering of glossiness at all scales. Alongside painting where she enjoys manipulating surface textures her practice naturally extends into collage, assemblage and installation works.
Woods views the world through a unique lens where questioning social norms (especially those closer to home) are at the root of her practice.
