The designer Richard Woods is famous for his radical wood designs. With this natural material the Britain is virtuous and he changes, interprets and ironizes already existing concepts.
Especially three styles emboss thereby the Richard Woods works: The Tudor style of England of the 16th century, Pop Art and the Do-It-Yourself movement of the 1950s. Woods combines these styles to create something unique. This connection of naturalness and arts with a little trace of Vintage style is thereby his branding. This often has an ironic aftertaste, so that one cannot really say if it is about a sculpture, architectural work or a graphic.
Woods’ wooden grounds are especially famous; those are available in different patterns and colourful designs, displaying strong Pop Art characteristics. They are also a perfect example for basic concepts in Richard Woods’ works. The gap between the ideal world and reality is thereby a continuous topic: The beauty and naturalness is steadily broken by colourful, seemingly not context suitable elements. This is how Woods changes well known concepts and makes the viewer think about what he is seeing.
