Martin Bromirski photo blogs installation photos from the recent exhibition Brenda Goodman: Paintings at John Davis Gallery in Hudson, New York.
In a 2007 interview with David Brody, Goodman said about her work: "I... move back and forth between abstraction, figuration and the combination of the two a lot in my work as well as changing scale from very small to very large….power in the small painting and intimacy in the large ones. All these things are part of me now and they inform each painting I do... I try and stay with the intensity and the emotion, the feeling, without making it ironic... Every square inch has to mean something. There’s no corner of the painting that doesn’t have the same amount of conviction andintegrity as another part. Every square inch should be important and full."
