Counter-current is a term used to describe an exchange between two properties, usually heat or electricity, which are flowing in opposition to one another. It infers a conversation between two entities, where each informs the other yet advantage is neutral.

Jennifer Goodman’s latest body of work explores this idea of exchange with new paintings that are developed in pairs, not as diptychs, but rather as a dialogue. One work in each pair examines the artist’s abiding interest in geometric abstraction though with a further deconstruction of the grid which earmarked her earlier work. Its counterpart image shatters the grid entirely, revealing a new mode of abstracted geometry.

This new exhibition expresses a departure from Goodman’s more rigorous focus on geometry. It displays a resolve, delicacy and balance and a freer more intuitive hand.
