Artist Statement

Goodwin's work reflects on systems of power that seek to admonish women and obliterate desire. Employing a “female gaze,” she documents new ideations of masculinity and representations of the body within her intimate relationships. With humorous irony, these images demonstrate the tension between adoration and objectification; dominance and subordination.
