In "Burnt Out" Goodman examines the absurdity of life in a collection of colorfully grim paintings that recall his first memories of death, relations with loved ones and the sometimes overwhelming nature of life. He tackles the difficulty and weight of the daily grind with perseverance and playful self-deprecation.
“It’s a celebration of the strangeness that is living” says Goodman. “Life can be so relentless, and you get to a point when you’re burnt out, but you keep going because you don’t know what else to do.”
Bridging the gap between his painting work and his relief print work, Goodman expands his painting technique for “Burnt Out,” bringing the stress of daily life alive with layers of goopy, vivid color. The work is eerie, but playful as Goodman toes an uneasy balance between grime subject matter, and the bright color they are rendered in.
All paintings are Acrylic on Panel.
