Johanna Goodman’s collage’s

New York-based artist Johanna Goodman has been drawing, painting and making collages for more than 20 years. In 2015, she began, on a whim, the project Imaginary Beings – collages of people wearing surreal garments such as clouds or trains or bird wings. She follows no set rules when creating her pieces and makes intuitive choices until she feels the collage is ready. “The more I surprise myself the better,” she says. “I find it exhilarating as well as challenging to take images that might seem banal and turn them into something bizarre, and hopefully beautiful.” She has created more than 100 of these images, inspired by fashion, history and art, and says “in some way they are each projections of parts of myself”.
