Angela Woods

Artist’s Statement

I hope to convey a personal connection within the spaces through which we travel, which are often more important and interesting than the destinations.  The human condition and the places we dwell are fascinating to me.  My hope is to translate that feeling and let it drive me to create my current works. 

We move so fast.  I hope to evoke a lasting memory of the places we move through.
