Artist Residency: David Goodman

Artist Statement:
My investigation focuses on the visual mapping of relationships between form, materiality and the connection of aesthetic universals within the modernist dialogue.  The approach to a project is in a manner comparable to archeology (the reconstruction of the visual landscape premised on its trace.)  At the core of the image making, is the science of looking and understanding how I identify with environment.

My goal for the BoxoHouse residency is to pull in a relationship and use both found materials and paper to extend this interaction to the desert environment. I’ve found that gauging materials is difficult—I rely on immediacy—but I’ve been thinking of more physical/building/construction materials ( like pink roofing foam, and silver duck tape for example) to match a physical reaction.
