Rachel Goodyear - Artist

Rachel Goodyear, drawings present captured moments in a world where social etiquette and boundaries no longer, or maybe never, applied.
Goodyear's drawings are suffused with a gentle menace, displaying a mass of ambiguous truths and blatant invention. They walk the line between playful curiosity and sadistic torment, revealing a place where the mundane and the spectacular, the blessed and the cursed, dwell in uneasy accord.

“Nothing is at home in these works, as if the world had been tapped lightly and everything had stumbled into unfamiliar positions”
- Dave Beech (2005)
