Kristine Woods’ work is informed by her history in performance, her teaching, and by her work as a Gynecological Teaching Associate. She has a history of collaboration but is currently working alone in the studio primarily on sculptural forms supported by drawing, reading, weaving and writing. The concerns of the current work are rudimentary—standing, containing, struggling—and are fundamentally reliant on the properties of materials: their physical characteristics and their vernacular. Woods received her BA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was a 2008 Creative Capital Foundation Grant recipient. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York and is an Associate Professor at The Maryland Institute College of Art.
