Woodruff’s Echo Maker series unveils a compelling body of work that retains her formidable use of color, and displays a vision of depth, subtly and maturity. Hungarian mathematics professor Zoltan Suhajda defined Woodruff’s work as “natural fractal pour paintings.” Fractals, patterns, gravitational forces and chaos theory are all implicit elements of each painting. Her process, developed over a decade, is a delicate balance between the laws of gravity and the will of Woodruff. It allows for a combination of natural occurrences and controlled chaos that reveals the recurring patterns and shapes within. Woodruff’s intent is clear that these particular shapes represent the sexual and psychological symbols of power and the feminist aspect of her work.

The migratory habits of cranes and the mythology that surrounds them, so well served in Richard Powers’ wonderful novel “The Echo Maker,” acted as a catalyst for Woodruff’s new series. Each painting is a conscious “echo” of a life immersed in nature and enamored by space and science. Einstein advised: “Look in nature and you will find everything.” Woodruff has taken that advice to heart. According to the artist, “My desire is to create cosmic dust. Both literally and not. Looking at the Hubble telescope images or any phenomena in nature is an unparalleled inspiration.”
