A Georgia native, Whitney Wood Bailey currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her MFA degree in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta and her BFA in painting from Auburn University. Whitney also studied with UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art in Cortona, Italy as well as post-graduate study with Rhode Island School of Design in France. She was awarded residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and the Hambidge Center and was a featured artist in New American Paintings. Whitney has exhibited nationally and internationally including Paris, Shanghai and Hong Kong as well as New York and around the U.S. Her most recent exhibitions include “The Art of Now” currently at Hearst Galleries in New York, and a solo exhibition at Denise Bibro Fine Art in New York.
Whitney’s work is driven by questions of a metaphysical nature such as how design and orchestration within nature affects our consciousness, and how the extraordinary geometries within nature’s design demand the consideration of intelligent design as well as our notions of spirituality.
