Mirror Mime Exhibition
Woody was invited to exhibit at YSP's Upper Space Gallery. The museum's stunning landscape - originally designed over 200 years ago as a private pleasure ground - provided inspiration for Mirror Mime. Infused with Renaissance imagery and 1920s style, Mirror Mime depicted a beguiling world where historical fact became a reimagined present.
The exhibited new works included: three-dimensional paper portraits; miniatures in vintage jewellery; intricate pen and ink drawings; silkscreens on mirrored paper. Black, gold, silver and lilac set the tone.
'Wood's characters come to life crossing that boundary between fantasy and reality. There's an appeal to Wood's Work. Captivating, simple and elegant, it's rich in aestheics and there's real beauty - taking you back to a simpler time of innocence and playfulness.' Cherie Federico, Aesthetica magazine.
In White Night the outline of the rabbit is left unprinted, so when the viewer stands in front of the piece their reflection makes the character’s outline. The mirrored paper also created fluidity: 'Simply breath taking work, the Duchess with her reflective sea of hair is truly iconic. A real pleasure to see such fine and considered work.'

Woody was also commissioned to create artwork to run across the museum's 20 metre concourse - view The Story of Aurora here - and to design special shop window for the museum shop. Studio Woody designed all the exhibition merchandise and worked closely with Unlimited on directional signage and promotional materials for the exhibition.
Mirror Mime screenprints went on to be selected for Somerset House's contemporary graphic art fair Pick Me Up.
