Untitled is a striking painting of typical Montreal apartment balconies overlooking an alley. Goodwin’s saturated and vibrant colour palette is applied here in textured strokes, revealing her gestural brushwork and the materiality of her medium. The brick wall in the foreground is executed in varying shades of red, with pops of burnt orange and magenta, providing an intense contrast to the bright blue sky above. The addition of the two figures in the background infuses the work with life and grounds it in reality. Authentic and engaging, this work is an important example of Goodwin’s scenes of the Jewish neighborhoods in Montreal.
