Mars Woodhill: Of the Earth

MARS WOODHILL

of the earth

July 8 – August 12

ARTIST RECEPTION: Saturday, June 29, 5-7 pm

“Mars Woodhill’s kaleidoscopic whorls and eddies of paint bring to mind naturally occurring geological forms – semi-precious stones, geodes, or mineral deposits… Part of the visual interest lies in her working process, one that is fascinatingly legible on the surface of her paintings.”

-–Ian Alteveer
Assistant Curator, Modern and Contemporary Art
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

About the Exhibition

Texas Art House is pleased to present Mars Woodhill in a solo exhibition of the earth July 8 through August 13. Her work references geological and biological influences – a work may suggest the interior of a mineral formation, a distant view of an undiscovered world, or the beginnings of a new life form.

As Woodhill says, “My work depicts energy and movement. I seek to examine the elements that produce change, whether in nature or within an individual’s inner world. Many of my works give visual voice to the forces that propel human action as it is the energy from my internal world that unconsciously drives the result. As I delve into adaptation to boundaries, and convergence/divergence, some of my paintings freeze a moment of explosive energy, while others provide a meditation on life’s beginnings. Both express progression and vitality.”

Woodhill has exhibited widely in Texas, plus New York and the Northeast. She has a BA in Art from Austin College in Sherman, Texas.
