Lori Goodman sees the word and then recreates it by hand. Her interpretations of the natural and built world are often made of Lori’s handmade paper. “The structures and installations are the result of looking intimately at and absorbing parts of life,’ state Goodman. “Small things can be astonishing and overlooked. Often this analysis results in dissecting and exaggerating observations. Making the work then becomes intuitive.”

JOURNEYS III is the first installation at the new Black Faun Gallery location and continued exploration for Goodman. “This show is a journey,” explains Goodman. “I have had many transformative journeys in my life. I have traveled, hiked, and lived in wonderful places. I am also fascinated by process. I want to know how the roof is thatched, how the hut is made, where the natural dye comes from, and how the hive or nest is constructed. These basic constructions are at the root of who we are and what we can do: all so very sophisticated in their simplicity. These forms also speak of community, of building together and using that which is found in our own environments.”
