This Saturday, Corey Helford Gallery will debut a new collection of work from LA artist Mia Araujo which explores the mysticism of mythological worlds through her dark yet ethereal imagery.
For “Into the Woods,” Mia drew inspiration from a variety of sources: Miyazaki’s film Princess Mononoke, the writings of John Muir, and Timothy Egan’s book The Big Burn. Her newest body of work is about connecting with the outdoors to go inward and discover your truest self. Nature is a sanctuary, and “a place to heal from all the exhaustion, stress, and wounds that each of us carry in our daily lives.” Mia adds, “I feel that people today need to be reintroduced to the raw power and beautiful honesty of nature, an experience that no manner of technology can ever replicate.”
