Maps for New Mythologies: A Video Interview with Wren Ross

In Sticks Laid In Patterns and Other Mundane Oracles, her upcoming exhibit at the Alice Gallery in Salt Lake City, Wren Ross mines the symbologies of oral storytelling traditions to explore the contemporary need for new myths and new heroes. As she says in this video interview, recorded as part of the 35×35 exhibition in 2016, her works on paper are organized like maps, not relating a narrative of pre-established meaning, but providing visual building blocks for the creation of new mythologies.

 

Sticks Laid In Patterns and Other Mundane Oracles is at the Alice Gallery, July 14 – Sept. 8.

The founder of Artists of Utah and editor of its online magazine, 15 Bytes, Shawn Rossiter has undergraduate degrees in English, French and Italian Literature and studied Comparative Literature in graduate school before pursuing a career in art.
