October marks the beginning of the winter for me, yes, I know there are actually over two months to go before winter really sets in, but the shortened days, the chill in the air, and the leafless trees are the writing on the wall that remind me that the shortest days of the year are upon us.
I first saw Evelyn Woods’ work on the wall of a friend’s house. The drawing stopped me in my tracks and I demanded to know whose work it was. Woods’ use of black and white in strong compositions, evoke memories just out of reach. Her latest work represents a shift towards color. These leafless trees, some with tangled branches, some with sawed off limbs, are no less soaked in meaning than her earlier black and white works.
