A Metallurgist and an Artist
Abby Goodman utilizes dedication to process in a material based practice to emphasize content. Daily life experience, dreams, and journeys, create an autobiographical pastiche complete with beautiful beasts, barren landscapes, and a cavalcade of misfit champions. Goodman uses this illusive world as a platform to address the human condition. This imagery acts as a harbinger, yet functions as a symbol of hope.
Abby Goodman – mixed media artist!
A metallurgist from the age of twelve, Abby grew up in an old barn in the outskirts of Philadelphia. A nomadic nature drives her to work and study alongside masters around the globe, collecting knowledge in exchange for labor. These experiential travels forge the basis of Goodman’s work. Scavenging the streets for discarded materials, she utilizes her skills transforming found objects into freshly minted works of art.
