(on-going) dimensions variable, archival inkjet photographs, scored and folded
In the on going series Mould the surface of photographs are given further dimensions. Using folding, scoring and puncturing, intense studies of heads are coaxed onto the cusp of three dimensions. In all senses of the word, Goodwin tries to discover a form for his speculations about these people, through his touch he attempts to reanimate both the surface and the underside of the photographs. Presented separately and in clusters Mould suggests a proliferation of associations, a breeding ground of imaginative connections. Goodwin, interested in the re-introduction of the hand and mind into the infinitively reproducible photographic image, shapes and constructs these photographic surfaces into unique low reliefs.
