Mary holds an MA with distinction in Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred, and her thesis, ‘Rebirthing a Lost Vision of Renaissance Art’, researched quattrocento Florentine Renaissance art from a broad context of ancient Greek philosophy, the neuroscientific approach of Dr Iain McGilchrist’s thesis on the left and right hemispheres of the brain, archetypal psychology and Renaissance artistic approaches. She holds a BA hons degree in The History of Art from London University where her studies focused on Italian late medieval and Renaissance art and architecture.
Mary’s teaching and research seeks to offer a broader understanding of art, not as an object to be analysed, but as an interface of perception, consciousness, epistemologies, psychological and philosophical knowing. For more information visit www.maryattwood.com.
