David Greenwood is a well-known Michigan sculptor and member of the faculty of Sculpture & Functional Art at Kendall College of Art and Design. He is the recipient of numerous honors and grants including four Michigan Council for the Arts & Cultural Affairs grants and three Fulbright grants for research and teaching abroad. He has exhibited his work widely in the USA and abroad.
Mr. Greenwood's primary medium over the past 25 years has been wood, though he also has extensive expertise with clay, bronze casting, welding and mixed media. His mixed media work led to experimental performance art projects which were presented in the USA, France and Yugoslavia.
There are three primary thematic threads that run thru Mr. Greenwood's sculpture: metaphors based on kayak and boat forms; animal allegories discussing the human condition; and his latest series of abstracted/invented “Seedpods.” He says, "Art-making is a journey inward to discover what is both uniquely personal AND universally human.”
