76 Grand Street
Super Tudor was an installation by Richard Woods at Deitch Projects' 76 Grand Street location. Woods transformed the gallery into a mesmerizing amalgam of printed patterned floors, walls, and art objects that referenced various architectural and art historical styles. From the mock Tudor façade, to the faux classical sculptures turned into fountains, to the marquetry style wood work paintings, Woods juxtaposed dissimilar yet recognizable stylistic elements from a variety of eras in order to create completely unique environments.
Upon entrance to the gallery’s Tudor exterior, eight foot tall repeated images of parrots lined the walls of the main gallery while printed images of cockatoos covered the walls of the storefront space. The printed floor, which was constructed from five different patterned blocks, ran throughout the space in a herring-bone mock parquetry style. Neoclassical faux garden sculptures sat on a variety of pedestals and had been crudely transformed into fountains so that the sculptures sat in plastic buckets with visible tubes and pumps attached to them. Groups of marquetry paintings, hung salon style, were on view whereby the techniques and subject matter of this craft was entirely traditional but the hyper-graphic effect of the work ultimately obfuscated the craft.
Richard Woods was born in Chesire in the UK in 1966. He received his M.A. at the Slade School of Fine Art in 1988 and has had solo shows at Greidervonputtkamer in Berlin and at Modern Art Inc. in London. At the time of the exhibition, he had an upcoming solo exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Richard Woods currently lives and works in London.
