Laura Goodson’s work is a modern representation of americana/western figures of the past and occasionally their unforgiving landscapes.
Her work is dominated by bold, hat wearing cowboys, bandits and outlaws. She lets the depth of her characters and their journey come through single brush strokes and hard shadowing to emphasize physical pain and grit endured by emotional discourse and hardship.
Laura’s work is monochrome; she allows the lack of color to represent a world beyond our vision. Within Laura's work a common masculine theme can be discovered but more notable is the story behind the man in hat the story she shares 2 dimensionally through layers of loss and the power of resilience.
