Artist puts surreal landscapes on display in UC Clermont Art Gallery

Closing reception to be held on campus March 29

The exhibit “Of Itself So” by Clint Woods, featuring surreal natural landscapes, will be on display in the UC Clermont Art Gallery through March 29, when a closing reception will be held from noon-1 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

Woods is a Cincinnati-based artist and designer with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking from Northern Kentucky University and a Master of Fine Arts in electronic art from UC’s College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning. Woods has been featured in several local and regional exhibitions, in addition to being the recipient of the Hemera Foundation’s 2014 Tending Space Fellowship.

Woods’ works vary in size but all focus on the intricate details he captures in each individual piece. The viewer is drawn in closely to scrutinize the slightest fine pen strokes that create one world inside another, highlighting his surgeon-like precision and detailed approach to his craft.

“Ambiguity and incongruities in depictions of natural physical law lead the viewer to interpret and participate in each scene,” Woods said. “Objects float in zero-gravity space or can be buoyant in fluid environments, and the proposed environments could be depictions of forest floors, the deep sea or outer space, on either a microscopic or cosmic level.” 

The UC Clermont Art Gallery is located in the Snyder Building on the college’s campus at 4200 Clermont College Drive, Batavia, Ohio. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m., or by appointment.
