“I am trying to realize and express my personal vision of the world around me as vitally as possible. I want to use the elements of shapes, spatial relationships, rhythms, color, to build a structure in which a meaningful content and the objects in the painting possess an intense reality, revealing more than the visible.”
– Betty Goodwin
Although she started earning recognition only around the late 1960s, and mostly for her prints and drawings, Betty Goodwin had been working as an artist since the mid-1940s. Displaying Goodwin’s thickly textured brushwork, the surface of Untitled has a sketch-like quality reminiscent of her drawing, a medium she was particularly fond of. Goodwin did not shy away from challenging subjects, but rather treated them head-on and with acuteness. Through her figures, she was able to convey themes and human experiences such as disappearance, memory and resilience. Here, two figures are rendered through gestural painterly streaks in flattened planes of vivid colours. Their proximity creates tension in the composition. Within the intimate format of this work, Goodwin skilfully captured a sense of urgency and vulnerability.
