Writing about this body of work Tim Riley Walsh, captures its viscosity, highlighting the ‘stickiness’ of Moody’s text content:

“Moody’s texts, however, introduce a quality of doubt into our typically fixed relationship with language, reminding us of its malleability… The artist’s words hang and loll about in the mind—they grow, fester, expand, or fizz. These latest works continue this tradition of words that at first glance seem simple, yet quickly reveal an enticing ambiguity, providing a thick caramel for the mind.” — Tim Riley Walsh (Catalogue Essay Writer)
