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.
This picture, which is the most boldly coloured of the series, bears a strong contrast between the Red and black, Yin and Yang. Viewers can almost witness the artist’s action against the paper visibly improvised from the start to finish.
