Richard Goodwin – Navigator
Extraordinary sculptures, models, maquettes and drawings from Richard Goodwin. Visions of the future and the past, the porous and parasitic, habitable and inhabitable space, machines and the human form.
Winter Exhibition Suite 2017
This Winter, view the work of major Australian artist Richard Goodwin at Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest. The exhibition brings together select artworks, models and maquettes produced over the past 25 years from his series’, Ulysses, Drone Dorje, Mystic Alien, Parasite and Porosity.
Architect, artist, author and Professor of Sculpture at UNSW Art and Design, Goodwin’s practice has long concerned architecture and technology, habitable and inhabitable space, machines and the human form. Goodwin describes his gallery practice as the permeable edge that exists between public and private space and scale of the city.
In the Main Gallery large scale drawings will be positioned alongside ‘architectures’ small and large, alien machine constructions, carapace and exoskeleton, snarling power and promising dangerous velocity – all autobiographical references to a life lived within and alongside a particular history of western art and architecture.
In the Lounge Room Gallery view Goodwin’s real and imagined architectural models, exploding bikes and cars which call into question the relationship of humans to the built environment, at once chaotic and forcefully alive.
