Erin Goodine

21 août 2023 - 17 septembre 2023

Erin Goodine is a painter and interdisciplinary artist based in New Brunswick, Canada. Their work focuses on time, form, fluidity, and the uncanny through painting, drawing, sculpture, video and installation. Erin graduated from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in 2011 and has developed an oil painting and interdisciplinary art practice through mentorships and collaborations. Erin collaborates as a curator and writer with the 3E Collective and maintains a dedicated studio practice in downtown Fredericton.

In Erin’s current work, they create paintings, drawings and video as poetic depictions, exploring time and fluidity between subject, object and environment. Erin’s artwork develops through exploratory drawings guided by reference images from everyday life and inspiration from films and media. These gathered images are removed from their original context through cropping and recontextualized through pairing, stacking or merging, allowing the artwork to transform into imagined and uncanny scenes. Erin is interested in the mechanics of sequential art forms such as comics and film for their ability to depict and reconceptualize time and perspective.

During their residency, Erin will develop a new series of paintings exploring the mechanics of time within sequential images, which will inform a future video installation. Erin will experiment with forms, boundaries and binaries that merge or dissolve. The 2D artworks will focus on composition, colour and tone, playing with the representation of time in static images. Guests are invited to engage with the artwork and contribute an anonymous one-sentence response that will inform the video project.

This project will take inspiration from Alex Colville’s Nudes on Shore from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery permanent collection. Erin will explore Colville’s use of composition, ambiguity, and his artwork's influence on film.
