Sidney Goodman: Drawings
Goodman’s epic art was large. And contradictory. And contained multitudes. It spanned from serene to apocalyptic; from heroic to demonic; and from deeply empathetic to disturbingly violent. His work interwove Christian imagery, Jewish identity, historical events, and a broad repertoire of ancient and modern art—all the while entirely grounded in the objects and activities of our everyday world. His varied sources of inspiration served as the raw material that he fractured, shuffled, manipulated, and, finally, surpassed as he brought forth newly invented imagery manifesting his own unique vision.
