The publicity image for 2018 is From One Incarnation to the Next, by Martha Woodbury. The diptych was selected by the Art Maui Board of Directors, from works in the 2017 exhibition.
Martha Woodbury has lived and worked as an artist in the Hawaiian Islands for over two decades. Before coming to Upcountry Maui, she resided in northern New Mexico. There, she was involved with the arts community in Santa Fe and Taos, where she was known for her large elemental abstract paintings and mono-prints.
Woodbury is a photographer and explorer. Early in her career she lived and worked for two years in Cusco, Peru. Throughout her life she has traveled in Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
In a lifelong creative flow, she continues to explore light and the color spectrum, polarity and energy dynamics, physics and metaphysics, and the imagination.
“I believe the imagination is a new frontier in human evolution, and we have yet to recognize its infinite potential.”
Her work has been in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Hawaii and across the U.S.
