This Month’s ArtWalk:

Friday, November 14, 2014

Join us for Anamnesis, an exhibit of paintings by local artist and instructor Lauren Woods and photography by Mehrdad Vaghefi.

About the Show:

Anamnesis

an.am.ne.sis / anəәmˈnēsis/

noun

1. the recollection or remembrance of the past; reminiscence.

2. the remembering of things from a supposed previous existence (often used with reference to Platonic philosophy).

This body of work embraces aestheticism as an escape from contemporary living. Antiquated concepts of beauty and refinement from a borrowed existence avoid addressing practical matters.Remaining vulnerable to interpretation, these constructed scenes reveal a seemingly unromantic present by ignoring less ideal situations from the past.

About the Artist:

Lauren Woods draws from art history, religious iconography and comparative mythology to construct paintings that explore the nature of images and the transformational characteristics of the human form. In 2006 Lauren received her BA in studio art from Spring Hill College. She then completed an MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art in 2010. Currently, she is an Instructor of visual arts at both Spring Hill College and The University of South Alabama. In addition to painting, she also has an extensive background as a classical ballet dancer, and her work is influenced by the ethereal and lyrical aesthetic of the art form. Most recently, she has taken this experience into scenicand costume design for various productions.

Take a sneak peek at some of the featured art below.
