Catalogue of Imaginary Beings, Plate 209 13” x 19” C-Type print
This piece is great for someone with an eye for style, and is best in a bright room with red and/or blue flairs.
Here Goodman uses her classic composition with the added artistic benefit of a natural, impressive subject matter. The large wave adds a dynamism that really brings the piece alive, and with contrasting, surreal scales, with massive waves, and an absuredly tall model, this adds to an exciting, fun image for the viewer. On top of this, Goodman uses a classic blue/red colour scheme to create an image that simply works.
