Abby Goodman












We learned about Abby Goodman via Blackbird Gallery in New York. It was instantly apparent that she is a talented, dedicated, artist who is excelling in various mediums. We were intrigued by her sculptures and installation, particularly Deer Fly. Naturally we had to reach out to have her on the blog!
 
A metallurgist from the age of twelve, Abby grew up in an old barn in the outskirts of Philadelphia.  A nomadic nature drives her to work and study alongside masters around the globe, collecting knowledge in exchange for labor.  These experiential travels forge the basis of Goodman’s work.  Scavenging the streets for discarded materials, she utilizes her skills transforming found objects into freshly minted works of art.  Sculpture, painting, installation, and performance all contribute to her autobiographical pastiche.  Complete with mythical beasts and barren landscapes, Goodman uses this illusive world as a platform to address the human condition. These images act as harbingers, yet function as symbols of hope.
