Catherine Woods has a visceral passion for color. She shares the possibilities of ever-changing light through large-scale glass sculptures that change from every angle, and shift their appearance by day and by night.

In a conversation rich with laughter, Catherine details the work involved in public art commissions that combine art with engineering and construction crews. She explains the practicalities of leaving a secure job for a full-time art career, and the work required to push beyond simply ‘okay’ ideas to discover sparks that both scare and excite her as an artist.

Catherine shares the lure of creating small-scale models and monumental sculptures, of using cutting-edge technology but knowing when to work by hand. She studies the history of art while constantly exploring adventurous new art around the world.
