Betty Goodwin
Betty Goodwin (née Roodish) was born in 1923 in Montreal. Her distinguished career as an artist was devoted to the exploration of the figure, which she believed was the prime symbol of the human condition. From her first print editions entitled, "Gloves, Vest, Shirt and Hat" and for more than a decade, Betty Goodwin experimented with collage, assemblage, sculpture, print making, painting and drawing that directly or indirectly addressed aspects of the human form in expressive and highly emotional ways. Strongly influenced by the work of European artists Joseph Beuys and Egon Schiel, she developed her art into a powerful force of "body suffering." Goodwin was one of Canada's most renowned artists, who pursued her expressive and highly individualistic theme for more than 40 years. She received the Order of Canada in 2003. She passed away in 2008.
