About Dan Woodard

 
 
  • Biography

    My work has been described as elegant, yet also earthy and powerful.  My sculptures are informed by my own subconscious and my interest in the worlds of the mythic, the numinous, and the archetypal.  I use these inspirations and a spontaneous interaction with a variety of materials to create both figurative and abstract pieces.  My emotional state while I’m working is also strongly reflected in the sculptures.  Some express a calm, almost beatific sensibility.  Others display extreme disturbance and anguish.  Generally, it is only upon completion of an individual sculpture, or often a series of sculptures, that I’m able to tease out the meaning and significance for me personally.

    However, regardless of the emotional impact, I seek a connection with the viewer.  My ultimate goal is to have the viewer feel a sense of familiarity with the work...a sense of knowing, of understanding.
