Woods Davy

Woods Davy is a sculpture born in Washington D.C. and currently resides in Venice California. He received his M.F.A. from the University Of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana in 1975. Davy is most known for his abstract sculptures made from stacking stones.

His work literally defies gravity. He uses stones to gracefully reach towards the sky in a way that seems almost effortless. I love the natural look of the stone compared with the unnatural and contemporary forms of his pieces.
