Another Word for Body: Paintings by Coral Woodbury
Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, February 8, 5pm
Exhibit on View: February 8 – March 16
Hollister Gallery, Babson College
Coral Woodbury’s paintings explore the ephemerality of both corporeality and memory, yet celebrate the immortal force of human bonds through remembrance. The artist uses the imagery of the palimpsest: an ancient parchment manuscript whose writing has been scraped away to make way for new writing yet still shows traces of the original, melding time and thought into a multilayered record. With pieces selected from across multiple bodies of work, this exhibition is constructed as an examination of how memory can preserve and heal.
