David Woodward is visual artist based in Toronto on the lands of the Anishinabek,
the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Haudenosaunee, and the Huron-­Wendat. Working with
a variety of media including collage, sculpture and drawing, his practice focuses on the
reassembly of found materials and imagery. Through consideration of the intersections
between the individual and the communal, works respond to notions of progress,
meaning - construction and the nature of knowledge and belief.
