Phaidon and Artspace are proud to announce a new limited edition by contemporary painter and sculptor, Woody De Othello.

Inspired by Impressionism, Tibetan sand mandalas, meditation, and the California landscape, Guidi mixes sand with paint to create atmospheric abstract compositions that radiate from a centerpoint outward and inspire a meditative state of being.

Woody De Othello is known for sophisticated and witty investigations of banal subject matter spanning household objects, bodily features, and the natural world. Othello often turns his gaze to everyday domestic artifacts such as chairs, vases, and light switches, and imbues their forms with emotive, surrealistic, anthropomorphic proportions. Convincingly producing a palpable gravitational effect upon his inanimate subjects is a central challenge of his practice and is a prominent feature throughout his works in various media.
