“Be alert! Mark Woods' art paraphernalia sensually approaches and rapidly seduces you, robs your senses and deprives your intellective aptitudes. It craves for communicating something exciting, suggestive and mysterious. You might listen attentively but somehow the transmission appears short- circuited, as if something uncanny prevented the alluring objects from being fully understood. Then, the balmy desire and intoxicating anticipation they led you to, seem to vanish into something cold, uninhabited and unreal. By now the conflicting dichotomy fascination/repulsion, reality/fiction, practicality/contemplation, is already installed in your mind and the artist's idiosyncratic and convoluted discourse takes over.” Mónica Sánchez-Argilés
