Jennifer Goodman, counter current install

Counter-Current | Jennifer Goodman

November 13, 2014 - December 13, 2014

Counter current exchange is the mechanism by which a property of fluid, for instance heat or electrical energy, is transferred from one fluid to another that flows in the opposite direction.

Jennifer Goodman’s exhibition title indicates that the two visually different currents in her recent paintings, although apparently oppositional, should be considered symbiotic. This signal is affirmed by her strategic occasional pairing of a work with its counter piece. Like non-identical twins the coupled works’ distinctive individual features disguise a consanguineous interconnectivity established at the time of conception and maintained throughout the work’s evolution.
