Acme Studios — Sharyn Woods

Supporting Artists since 1972

Sharyn Woods

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Sharyn Woods is an Australian artist. Her practice is wide-ranging, including studio-based production of sculptures and drawings, temporary gallery-based and outdoor installations, permanent public art commissions and components designed for urban and streetscape applications.

Sharyn’s sculptural work is essentially abstract and is characterised by an emphasis on the inherent properties of materials and processes. She seeks to create a balance between the raw qualities of her materials and their sophisticated formal arrangements, often utilising unusual applications and techniques.

A major sculptural work was developed for GASP! (Glenchory Art and Sculpture Park) in 2012, following other public installations including Divide and Rule and Protect the Standing at the Greening Australia Sculpture trail and the permanent memorial More sinned against than sinning at the Convict Women’s Prison Site in Hobart.

Australia Council for the Arts

Since 1992, the Australia Council for the Arts has partnered with Acme to provide London work/live residency opportunities for Australian visual artists. These residencies are located at Acme's Fire Station in Poplar, E14. Application and selection is undertaken directly by the Australia Council for the Arts.
