Biography

George Goodnow

George Goodnow is a Melbourne/Naarm based artist. Their practice ranges from painting and public murals, to sculpture and site-specific installations. Across their practice, Goodnow’s work focuses on relationships to urban built environments to explore themes of gender and queerness. By fabricating fictional architectures and objects, or adjusting existing architectures, Goodnow considers how spaces reflect, orientate and hold bodies. Familiar materials and structures are manipulated to shift experiences of space, or rendered to convey emotion and memory – bringing built environments into closer proximity with the bodily. Goodnow completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2016. They have exhibited nationally and internationally, including at Ki Smith Gallery (New York), Science Gallery (Melbourne), Waiting Room - Sydney Sexual Health Centre (Sydney), Wollongong Art Gallery (Wollongong), Platform Arts (Geelong), The University of Newcastle Gallery (Newcastle) and Art Not Apart (Canberra). Goodnow has been commissioned to create public artwork for Collingwood Yards, Sydney WorldPride, AMBUSH Gallery, the City of Melbourne and many local councils. They have undertaken residencies at The Bank in Port Kembla, QBank in Tasmania and Platform Arts in Geelong.
