Get to know Janis Goodman, one of our new exhibitors.
I am a Leeds based printmaker, working out of my own studios which have pretty much taken over the house. I melt my wax grounds on top of the cooker and soak my paper in the bath! I love the mixture of technical problems and happenstance which influence the final image. My prints focus on the relationships between the natural and urban worlds. Every work is individually inked and hand printed using a heavy iron etching press. My prints are preoccupied with the patterns formed by roofs, windows and chimneys and how they contrast with the organic forms of plants and birds. My pictures are small narratives in which different elements meet and interact.
