Woods describes her work ...
"I explore how gender roles impact women’s labor and disparities. I bring in mythical entities and archetypes to show both a historical and immediate context. Much of my imagery reflects items women touch every day that become gendered items as a result. I ask what women would be like if they were not subject to imposed gender roles, and a wilder spirit often emerges from that narrative. The bodies are nude and transparent, showing an imagined biology. I do this to represent women without falling into a male gaze and to explore the physical health of the figures."
