Artists Jane Goodwin
Blue On Blue Series
The darkly glowing radiant blue painting series have developed over time.
“My sole interest with these abstract works has been the formal elements of colour, surface and space. I am influenced by the light reflected on the surfaces of buildings and water. I mix powder pigment to give an intense highly saturated depth of colour, with a soft powdery surface texture which draws the viewer into the picture plane. They appear more sculptural than two dimensional.”
Jane Goodwin’s earlier training in fashion design give this sculpture a boldness and drama. The faceless workers of The City, almost like ghosts, are depicted in this work where the faces are censored and generally ripped of any personal identity.
The Iconic Chair Suite
is a series of drawings of thread on paper, which echo the chairs of the 20th Century furniture designers.
The classic and seductive sculptural qualities of the chairs are influenced by designers of this period, including Anne Jacobson, George Nelson, Le Corbusier, Tom Dixon and Marcel Breur.
