Biography:

Laurus Myth is an interdisciplinary artist of multicultural descent, native to the Bay Area. Influenced by the architecture of sacred spaces and mental landscapes, her work is colorful and symbolic. Myth has been granted five city-funded mural commissions in Silicon Valley, and currently teaches public art and mural painting. Completing her MFA in 2017 Myth’s work ranges from interactive installations to sculptural forms. 

Artist Statement:

Interactive art can instigate connection by inviting participation and encouraging moments of engagement.My desire is to embrace the connections we share, from our youth, such as laughter, dreams, and memories.The union of opposites, awareness of nature and landscape, and the exploratory process of the art experience, are themes in my practice. 

 

As architectural forms create a means of passage, an arch or entryway marked with glyphs deciphers what lies ahead. The challenges of introspection are like my relationship with doors and windows. To see-through, to pass by, or to enter is a continuous practice of choice and at times, chance. My language is influenced by nature, technology, and intuition. I use this practice to decode my experience.
