AMY GOODWIN

"With each painting I start out with a phrase or idea but ultimately the works are determined by the decisions that arise in the process of their making. Responses to images and shapes suggests their paint application; hard and soft edges, highly chromatic or muted. Some of the work is made by directly applying paint and ink to a surface, and others result from painting separate elements and collaging them together. I work on several series at once, some of which are figurative while others explore non-narrative abstraction. All of the artworks end up informing one another." Goodwin received the Etan Manasse Prize from Yale University where she received her MFA.
