|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.
