"AMAZING INVENTIVENESS COUPLED WITH SKILLED CRAFTSMANSHIP" *
* Review by Raymond J. Steiner in arttimesjournal.com
A wonderful video of my work and sculpture studio,where I'm creating a new piece - and don't miss my four -legged studio manager!
A brief tour of the Fay Wood Studio with Wood speaking about her work.....and at the end , meet one of her studio managers
Unlike the "post Studio" techniques of recent artists, Fay Wood uses a meticulous, process oriented approach to her work. With a variety of materials - found metal, found wood, wire, paper, paint, Pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, glues, beeswax, and vintage collectibles - and a willingness to work by hand,Wood gives a new life to these materials by transforming them into fine art, with a liveliness and a sense of humor.
Wood has developed six portfolios of work and adds to them frequently......Found Object Sculpture, Hand - Carved Sculpture, Tapestry With Found Objects, Drawing, Oil Painting on Canvas or Glass, and the newest ....Collage. She was educated at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, learned about Sculpture from Jasmine Saunders, and carving from Wolfgang Behl. She has continued to teach herself new methods and mediums through the years.

The FOUND OBJECT SCULPTURE Portfolio is in two parts - free-standing & wall-hanging. There are also early wood carvings, some of which form part of the free- standing sculpture. Most also use vintage wood objects, and the carving is mostly cherry.There are both wood and metal wall pieces also using vintage materials. These are smaller in size, please look the price list to see sizes. TAPESTRY WITH FOUND OBJECTS was begun when Wood lost her studio to a hurricane in the 1980's and began the tapestries without a studio. They are brilliant examples of work using wool, silk, cotton and mixed media yarns with found materials. Recently she has been experimenting with small works as therapy.... losing herself in the creating of the design, then the patterns and color.
Wood began as a painter in oils - The PAINTINGS IN OIL ON CANVAS have many examples in both large & mid sizes. Still - life, the tapestry series and work based on plants from the garden predominate.
Wood learned the technique of REVERSE OIL PAINTING ON GLASS when she assisted her mother in replacing / repairing antique paintings in her mother's studio. She now uses the technique to create small jewel- like abstractions that glow with color through the glass. The latest portfolio, COLLAGE, was begun in Wood's new Drawing Studio that she recently moved into in the village of Saugerties, N.Y. (between the lovely Catskill Mountains and the impressive Hudson River). The collages are created with vintage engravings, and many materials collected for many years, and are narratives from Wood's mind....
