"Curiosities Diptych" is a pair of acrylic and ink paintings on archival paper. They are part of my oval series. They are playful and colorful. I created the left half first, and did a lot of looking in order to have the right half “speak” to the left. The two sheets of paper have deckled edges, and will require frames for display.

Getting to Know Nancy Goodman

Nancy Goodman Lawrence’s modern compositions appear bold and prominent on the surface, but delicate and sophisticated in their perfect sense of balance. The flatness of the work, and the off center compositions seem indicative of a Japanese influence. The work projects a lively sense of order, or an organized randomness, like a Japanese Zen garden. The work also has a strong graphic mid-century feel, with a playful personality. The anthropomorphic shapes interact with one another like the interplay of people on the street, or the pieces of a board game. As is evident from the balanced compositions, and controlled color palette, Nancy spends a lot of time looking and contemplating her next step. As she puts it, “the looking is as important as the doing.”
