Red #2 is an acrylic painting with a small amount of collage on a cradled wood panel. It is varnished for protection, wired and ready for hanging. This piece is part of my oval series in which I work with oval shapes that are often pressed closely within the surface. A silver orb hovers above the shapes. It has the feel of an imagined landscape or waterscape.

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.”
