ABOUT THE ARTIST
Rae Goodwin currently lives in Lexington, KY and works as the Director of Foundations at the University of Kentucky. She has taught at Pikeville College and Winthrop University and ran an arts enrichment business for nine years in North Carolina. In her work, she uses a process of self-reflection and analysis to prompt the viewer into a self-reflective state, where concepts of identity, family, community are challenged. Goodwin relies on repetitive processes and suggestive materials that are evocative of her past, gender, faith and community. Her performance and sculptural works have been shown regionally, nationally and internationally; in places like New Zealand, McColl Center for Visual Art in North Carolina, Central Park in Manhattan and the contemporary in Atlanta. She earned her MFA in sculpture from Winthrop University in SC and her BA in art from Framingham State College in MA.
