Much of Janis Goodman’s work is focused on structure either of inner city Leeds, where she lives or of the repetitive patterns of nature. She is as fascinated by patterns formed by roofs, walls and chimney pots as by plants, birds and trees. An interest in texture and mark making gives her work its strength, beyond the simply illustrative. She says “I like the repeated patterns in the urban streetscape of Chapeltown and Harehills and how they are broken up. I walk around the streets a lot, looking at things, and get my ideas.” Gardens and allotments also feature regularly in her work.
Working from her print studio, Janis uses her sketches and photographs to create a design which is then reversed to make the plate that she will print from. Her etchings are limited edition original prints. Each print is handmade: individually inked, wiped, printed, signed and numbered in small editions of just 40 or 50
The Gallery always has a good selection of Janis's work available framed or unframed.
