FSU Art MFA ’20 Camden Goddard won the Award of Excellence in the Nature Exhibition, a collection of work Juried by Ryan Horvath at the In Art Gallery.
I am interested in the ways in which the man-made and the natural both reject and inform each other. Natural textures, colors, and phenomena, stand out against the geometric and ordered urban space. As urban areas constantly develop, boundaries form where natural and human-made spaces come together. I am interested in this ever-changing delineation and the subtle moments of interaction between the two. Employing painting and collected natural-objects as materials for making, I bring viewers into a contemporary conversation that questions the definition of nature while exploring painting in the expanded field.
