Julia Goodman is a Bay Area based artist who creates low relief sculptural paper pieces from pulped, repurposed fabrics, either discarded or given to her by friends, family and community. Her work builds on the history of rag paper, intermingling different colored fibers to create vibrating fields of color as a metaphor to explore human interconnectedness. The new work included in this exhibition dives deeper into the painterly and sculptural potential of handmade paper with a series of intertwined, entangled and expanding abstract forms. Goodman works with pulped fabrics without the addition of any pigments or dyes. Inside her studio she creates intricate, colorful compositions; while outside she presses pulp from these humble and intimate materials against public exterior surfaces, like brick walls and concrete. These sculptural forms absorb and lift small fragments from the more permanent surfaces, giving the final pieces a range of textures and patterns pulled from the architecture.
