EXCERPT

“Amanda Wood uses repetition and chance to explore networks and relationships in hand-woven textile sculptures that pair natural fibres with simple wooden structures. Confounding the basic grid of plain weave, she manipulates her warp according to random algorithms to produce surprising, if subtle, disturbances in the fabric’s stark surface.

Her most dramatic piece, Disrupted, originates in a tangle of crisp black Japanese paper yarn, which rises through a pine picture frame to tether three black squares of cloth suspended from the ceiling. Evocative and gestural, the work suggests a surge of creative energy freed from the constraints of fine art to communicate through skill and materiality, as well as the re-thinking of traditional practice.”
