Mesmer Eyes by Kathy Goodell at Causey Contemporary
Sculptor, visual artist, visionary work:
Painting for the first time, after a substantial and productive career as an artist-sculptor, art professor at Suny New Paltz, Kathy Goodell’s seasoned subtle yet profound meditation on seeing, perception, perspective, individuality/collectivity is astounding. The creative precision of meticulous method in which an exquisite understanding of elliptical nature of being, perceiving, understanding, and allowing for accidents of discovery to emerge in work that is breathtaking in complexity, like the vast ocean of possibility in which beings dwell. The work rustles with life, quietly inviting one to dive deep within the asselage of materials, invested with muscular thought.
