Touched by Frances Goodman

(Art) Amalgamated presents Frances Goodman’s first solo show in New York Touched. Recognized as one of South Africa’s leading young artists, Goodman has become well known for her multi-media works that explore issues of female identity in ways that are often humorously dark and cryptic. By looking at everyday obsessions and behavior she explores the way people respond to our contemporary, highly materialistic society and the often idiosyncratic coping mechanisms they develop. Her work reflects a morbid ambiguity of excess and loss, a dislocation between appearance and truth. Touched is on view until August 4, 2012 at (Art) Amalgamated,   317 10th Avenue, New York
