Artist's creatures are ugly inside and out
Woody Othello's new installation at Unit 1 gallery in Lake Worth is a living room filled with odd and grotesque creatures who fritter away their lives and dwell in mediocrity. One stoneware sculpture, a figure with black, saucerlike eyes, is sprawled on a section of hardwood floor, gazing at a gold watch. His skin tone is chalky gray and medicinal green, his toenails dark and gangrenous, his bald cranium enlarged and pointed. Another creature with jaundiced skin stands on an end table, joined by a pair of frowning, unscrupulous-looking cohorts with red and purple skin.
