Brenda Goodman review
Image above: Loss (2009) by Brenda Goodman is one of the paintings included the 20-year survey of her work on view until Aug. 15 at John Davis Gallery in Hudson, New York. (Image courtesy of John Davis Gallery.)
A very thoughtful review of Brenda Goodman's show in New York has been posted at Art Critical. The show surveys 20 years of Goodman's work and makes the case that a retrospective is in order. Year in and year out, Goodman has delivered the goods at a high level of seriousness. That she has maintained that intensity for 40-some years is a testament to her commitment to making art, which extends from her early days in Detroit's Cass Corridor to her longtime studio above the madding crowds on the Bowery and now to the more peaceful precincts of the Catskills where her most recent work was created.
