The artist ingeniously imprinted an infinitesimal white dot in each ink mark, constructing an image that bears strong semblence to a shining star in a midnight sky. Her choice of a delicate pink background adds a sense of softness and feminity to the work.
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.
