Lauren Woods: Mythic Nature
December 4, 2020 - January 29, 2021
Mythic Nature is an exhibition of new paintings by Lauren Woods that features metaphorical scenes of personal transformation through feminine principles of darkness, destruction, and regeneration.
Woods is an artist whose practice explores the concept of mythic time within the environment of the theater. Personal myth, both in terms of subject matter and what it means to be a female artist, is developed visually across various mediums such as painting, video, and dance performance.
In 2006, Woods received her BA in studio art from Spring Hill College. She then completed an MFA in painting at the New York Academy of Art, Graduate School of Figurative Art in 2010. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Art in the Department of Art & Art History at Auburn University.
