Artist Statement

Based on daily life experience, dreams, and journeys, Goodman creates an autobiographical pastiche complete with beautiful beasts, barren landscapes, and a cavalcade of misfit champions. Goodman uses this illusive world as a platform to address the human condition and it’s effect on the human spirit. Working with a variety of media, Goodman utilizes her dedication to process in a material based practice to emphasize content. Found objects, reconstituted components, and traditional techniques create an iconography unique to this imaginary universe. This imagery acts as a harbinger, yet functions as a symbol of hope.
