"Six by Seven" is a mixed media work on vellum. It is comprised of mask-like shapes created with collage and ink. The materials I use in my collage include maps, vintage-style wrapping paper, magazines, and archival construction paper. The black border is acrylic paint. The use of vellum as a surface gives the work a slight bit of crinkly body. This work will need to be framed.

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.”
