About The Poster: A wonderful poster for an exhibition of Betty Goodwin that was held at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, using an oversize sheet. The Museum helps to convey the larger-than-life sense of wonder which viewers had when looking at these works. Great color and verve - we think it would be a wonderful addition to any room which needed a pick-me-up!
About the Artist: Over the course of thirty years, Betty Goodwin was an important member of the Montreal artistic community. She used the mediums of drawing, sculpture and printmaking, to portray the fragility of life in a complex, uncertain world. Attracted by the materiality of found objects and sites, Goodwin made visible their histories and innate characteristics. Themes of loss, mourning, passage and difficulty of communicating pervade her work. Her art evolved in series, and shows a strong affinity to Joseph Beuys and Bruce Nauman, two artists she greatly admired. Goodwin''s work is at once very personal, social and political and conjures up the malaise of our time.
In very good condition. Ready to frame.
