Jennifer Goodman’s painting practice is a detailed investigation into colour and composition. Her work is informed by an acute understanding of linear and geometric abstraction, modernism and colour theory. These rich, vibrant works are constructed from a unique combination of tones and hues which are all hand-mixed in the studio.
Often beginning with paper collage studies, Goodman explores compositions in smaller format before transposing the resolved composition to a large stretched canvas. Her finished paintings are high impact, complex works, which command attention and continue to reward over time.
Goodman’s inclusion in awards and curated shows such as the National Works on Paper Prize at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery in 2012 and the Bayside Art Award affirm her continuing relevance to the evolution of contemporary painting practice.
