Estate of the Artist
During the 1950s and '60s, Betty Goodwin painted mostly landscapes, portraits and still-lifes. While her art evolved in the late '60s, her role as an artist remained constant throughout her artistic career: to act as a witness of what goes on in the world surrounding us. Goodwin’s interest in found objects and their innate characteristics translates in the use of metaphors to communicate issues of life, loss, passage and meaning. In Still Life with Flowers and Oranges, each element is placed with intent and purpose. The ripe oranges pierce through the resonant blues and soft hints of yellow; a lush bouquet of wild flowers is nestled between inanimate objects; a chair slightly pulled-back showcases a seated mirror reflecting the edge of a dangling cloth.
