Cross Lane Projects presents a work-in-progress installation by artist Mark Woods in the main gallery space while also opening up his studio for visitors with a variety of new pieces on display. Woods is a British artist with a background in contemporary jewellery production and in boat building, he produces highly elaborate artefacts that blur the boundaries between jewellery, fine art, fetish objects and items from a cabinet of curiosities.
As described by writer Mónica Sánchez-Argilés, "Woods' highly glamorous and 'transgressive' objects are beautiful fetishes...While packed with feminist, masculine, sexual and even religious ideas, the attractiveness of their execution and the nobility of the materials immediately capture viewers' senses.”
