“I haven’t lost,” Woods said Wednesday from his home in Beacon, where he now runs a small studio and gallery. “I’m preparing to go to Washington as soon as I’m notified.”
For more than three decades, Wood, 82, lived in the four-story Downing St. structure, all the while creating a landmark of metal, glass and mirrors that was featured in a 2005 documentary featuring the comedian Dave Chappelle.
But after a fire that led to numerous building violations, Wood was forced to default on a mortgage. He lost the asset in a hotly contested foreclosure and was evicted last May.
