A small exhibition of the most recent work by Durham-based painter and sculptor, Rachel Goodwin. This collection of new work employs a variety of media to explore the accumulation and regeneration of various kinds of circular forms. The circles seen in almost every piece range from drilled holes to carved pools to spheres arranged in various concentric and non-concentric forms.
The work presented ranges from several hanging "Balls & Beads" pieces assembled from found objects and multiple paintings on wood of halos, pawn figures and interconnected web forms to a carved disc of wood depicting a utopia, as if it could be found by accident within a trees' trunk. Where possible all of the pieces reinforce the essential utility of re-use, leaning heavily on recycled post-consumer packaging and recycled wood.
