Again a really inspiring find by Walter Manning/Old Chum: The work of Betty Goodwin (1923 – 2008). ‘Attracted by the materiality of found objects and sites, Goodwin made visible their histories and innate characteristics.’
‘The soft-ground technique adopted by Betty Goodwin creates the illusion of three-dimensionality in these prints of everyday work apparel… Through the physical lack of object and body, the prints act as traces both of individuals and of memories suspended in time and place.’
Isn’t it beautiful how the fabrics are coming to life, like x-rays, like dried flowers pressed into paper. Love it!
