David Woodward is a Toronto-based artist who works predominantly in paper collage. Using imagery gleaned from used books about astronomy, horticulture, the environment and design, he explores relationships between the micro and macro by repurposing familiar and recognizable images into new forms that might function as containers or placeholders for individual experience.
