“Woods Davy, who lives in Los Angeles, has established a considerable reputation in the creation of large-scale abstract sculptures involving natural material and other media. For a number of years his aesthetics were Japanese – not in any directly imitative manner, but in a deep identification with Japanese notions of natural materials, harmony with the environment, and the incorporation of individual irregular details into an overall structure of serenely balanced energies. More recently, his imagination has turned towards Africa, both as an ardent collector of traditional African tribal art and in his own work, which has taken a significantly different direction.”
