Jane Goodwin Art

'Since 2004 Goodwin has developed her 'Blue on Blue' series of paintings, she uses a restricted palette of blue powdered pigment with limited reference to the natural world. The paintings are stripped of any relationship to a subject, decorative, symbolic or otherwise. She focuses on creating new forms. Planes, space, colour and surface are her primary concerns. Her work connects her to a long lineage of abstract painters, the Concrete artists of the 1930s and the Systemic artists of the 60s.

Although devoid of any recognisable subjects, these darkly glowing radiant blue paintings reflect in part the many geometric patterns and shifts of colour and light Goodwin witnesses on a daily basis in the urban environment around her'.
