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.
The artist disturbed the viewer’s taste for perfection by creating two large forms that temporarily surpassed the exquisite command of colours. Invaded by the seemingly superfluous objects across the painting, the ink mark from Po Mo (泼墨) has become so significant that can almost emerge through the gap.
