STATEMENT

Janine Good’s paintings reflect her interest in the interplay between micro elements found in the landscape and macro views of the landscape as a whole. She utilises scarred and imperfect surfaces of natural forms such as bark, seeds, leaves, insects, extracting a kind of natural graffiti of marks. Through improvised layering of paint, she assembles the imagery to create visually tactile compositions, instilled with narrative of a personal journey. These richly colourful explorations capture a timeless quality present in the Australian landscape similar to the way an opal preserves the Australian light.  Her paintings offer a beautiful insight and awareness of the landscape while celebrating the delicate yet chaotic intricacies of the natural world.
