Plot (airport) (2005)
1 X pencil on paper drawing, 420mm x 594mm
7 X ink drawings on paper, 74mm X 74mm
In the large landscape pencil drawings, Goodwin maps and decodes over 360o of his surroundings, made directly in each location.
Attempting to assimilate the whole panorama, the eyes dart around the space, plotting small details.
As a counter point, the seven smaller ink self-portrait drawings act as the pivot, mirroring Goodwin's active drawing process.
Imbedded in the act of looking and recording is continual movement and animation.
The focus cannot settle evoking certain disquiet; this undercurrent of paranoia is developed further in the sparing inclusion of figures in the space, suggesting potential dramas.
