Culling imagery from popular media and cultural outlets ranging from celebrated athletes to tragic heroines, James Woodward creates haunting works that address evolving technologies within the natural environment, social taboos and hysteria, and states of isolation and otherness. Employing video, photography and collage, his works challenge cultural and social constructs by manipulating and disorienting familiar people, places and objects. James Woodward has been included in exhibitions at the Reina Sofia, Madrid; The Queens Museum of Art, New York; The Maysles Institute, New York and Derek Eller Gallery, New York .
