It's no secret that this place is one of our favorite galleries ever
– because we appreciate well-honed craft
as much as we enjoy the heady concepts
of art – and now the epicenter of sculptural brilliance and creative blacksmithery
reveals new work by Austin-based Haley Woodward
. This series uses the strange and adaptable creatures found in the planet's seabeds as influence for sculptural forms … and Woodward uses iron like your grandma would use crochet, if your grandma were Alberto Giacometti as coached by Guillermo Del Toro
. Highly recommended, with or without scuba tanks.
