From the Corner of My Eye


a new site specific installation by Michael Woods opening at

The Malt Gallery in The Cut, Halesworth, Suffolk, UK.

Tuesday 27th October - Thursday December 31st.




For this new installation, Michael devotes his work as an artist, illustrator and designer through painted clay figures and screen prints  around the rich theme of the Trickster, one of the oldest expressions of mankind, found in the very beginnings of civilization  through to sophisticated contemporary cultures.


Originally inspired by Polynesian art and pictographs while in his twenties, Michael has in the past few years undertaken a study of trickster tales and illustrations through the centuries, arriving at his own interpretations of this personification of ambivalence and cunning.


Michael presents the attributes and narratives of the  trickster as a mirror of our primal instincts of survival, procreation and power. As both a male and androgynous figure the trickster  is frequently depicted with a frisky, daring penis, providing a wealth of ambiguous settings, cautionary tales and disruptive outcomes.
