Contrast I

Heather Goodwind was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania in 1973, and grew up between Berkeley, California and Key West, Florida.

She graduated from Portland State University with a BA in Sculpture and co-founded Gallery 214 in Portland’s Old Town district in 1996. She moved to Brooklyn soon after and began sculpting with found materials. This was also the beginning of her small format drawings in books, which now number over 600 works.

Both wet and dry Po Mo泼墨 (Splashing Ink ) techniques are applied in this work. Structured dry and dark Po Mo dominated the surface of the painting, yet rejected its aggressive masculinity by combining with wet-on-wet Po Mo泼墨 technique. Wistfully creating a significant contrast, almost a battle between the feminine and masculine.
