Steve Goddard: Two Poles - Works on Paper

7 March - 5 April 2012

Stephen Goddard's 2012 exhibition, the artist's first show dedicated solely to works on paper, was timely given the current spotlight on drawing. Throughout his career Goddard has demonstrated a natural affinity for line and produced both realist works belonging to an academic tradition whilst simultaneously cultivating his own provocative, inventive and expressive drawings. In his fourth solo show at The Fine Art Society, Goddard confronted these two poles, bringing them together in a direct, purposeful manner and creating a fascinating dialogue about the parameters of works on paper and his multifaceted approach to it.
