New limited edition by contemporary painter & sculptor, Woody De Othello
Artspace is proud to announce our glass, a new limited edition by contemporary artist Woody De Othello. Placing the artist’s parallel practices of painting and sculpture in dialogue, this two-pronged edition includes a run of 35 fluorescent print editions, five of which are accompanied by handmade ceramic sculptures.
Woody De Othello is known for sophisticated and witty investigations of banal subject matter spanning household objects, bodily features, and the natural world. Othello often turns his gaze to everyday domestic artifacts such as chairs, vases, and light switches, and imbues their forms with emotive, surrealistic, anthropomorphic proportions. Conjuring a palpable gravitational effect upon his inanimate subjects is a central challenge of his practice and is a prominent feature throughout his works in various media.

“The plants in my work are a metaphor for taking care and giving life. When I’m stressed out and not spending as much time at home, my plants start wilting away. The caretaking component of living with plants started to make its way into the paintings. I don’t want to say they’re a metaphor for a figure or a human presence, but it’s something alive in the work. I like that dichotomy of having these still, ceramic objects that are not going to move, but having something that changes implemented with them.”
— Woody De Othello
