On November 30, 2010, Spanierman Modern is pleased to announce that it will open Judith Godwin, presenting dynamic abstract canvases by an artist who was at the center of the Abstract Expressionist movement as it unfolded and has steadfastly continued to use its language to bring her direct, and at times raw, emotive experiences to the surface. Her paintings express complex feelings, revealing inner tensions and the struggle between contending forces, often producing a sense of recognition for the viewer, as they stem from candid and searing self-observation. At the same time, they reflect the artist's awareness of the state of the world, both in the aftermath of the devastation of the unleashing of the atomic bomb and the subsequent threats to life on earth. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue (available for $30) with color illustrations of the eighteen works included, an introduction by Ira Spanierman, and essays by Lowery Stokes Sims and David Ebony.
