The Richard Woods: D.I.Y. exhibit displays the Chester-born, London-based artist's colorful and cartoonish wood beams in an engaging way. Making up the floor and walls of the Alan Cristea Galley, where the art show is being hosted, people will interact with the work in an everyday sort of way. Nevertheless, they may tread a little more carefully on these floors.

Showcasing new work as well as his renowned Woodblock Inlays series, the Richard Woods: D.I.Y. exhibit is visually stimulating from beginning to end. He creates his sculptures using a traditional block-printing techniques. From there he inlays the wood in geometric patterns to form the eye-catching modern pieces featured in the Richard Woods: D.I.Y. exhibit. The gallery writes, "[his] simplified, stylised facades poke fun at our aesthetic values, both mocking and paying homage to the cult of renovation and DIY."
