Issy Wood, the London-based artist garnering headlines for her rapid rise in the art world, is not just a dab hand on canvas. Wood also makes music and has just released an album called My Body Your Choice, which includes tracks such as I Just Called to Say I Hate You.
In a recent interview with the Financial Times, Wood described her experience working with the famous producer Mark Ronson, whose other protegés include superstar singers such as Amy Winehouse. Wood and Ronson began collaborating in 2019. “No one had heard my stuff and he made me feel good about making it,” she says.
But in January 2021 the two parted company. Wood saw Ronson add extra instruments into her work and cut the occasional verse, explains the FT article. “It turned it from a hobby into something else, and it wasn’t the right move,” she said.
To see Wood’s latest hyper-real creations, head to Michael Werner gallery in New York, where her solo show Time Sensitive continues until 12 November.
