This is a mixed media work of graphite, colored pencil, ink and acrylic on paper. It is a diptych that is part of my "Oval" series. I have worked with a grid and let the lines show through to see the "bones" of the work. The diptych consists of two separate pieces of paper with deckled edges that will need to be framed side by side.

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.”
