Jane Goodwin’s art is a continual journey. Making sculpture is political, her soft body furniture is personal, and her painting is cerebral.

Paintings  Since 2004 Goodwin has developed her ‘Blue on Blue’ series of paintings, she uses a restricted palette of blue powdered pigment with limited reference to the natural world. The paintings are stripped of any relationship to a subject, decorative, symbolic or otherwise. She focuses on creating new forms. Planes, space, colour and surface are her primary concerns. Her work connects her to a long lineage of abstract painters, the Concrete artists of the 1930s and the Systemic artists of the 60s.  Although devoid of any recognisable subjects, these darkly glowing radiant blue paintings reflect in part the many geometric patterns and shifts of colour and light Goodwin witnesses on a daily basis in the urban environment around her.

“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)

Drawings 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 Breuer.

Jane Goodwin completed her M.A. in Fine Art at the University of Brighton 1995-7.
