Based from a studio at Islington Mill, Rachel Goodyear is a celebrated fine artist who explores notions of the uncanny, memory and the unconscious through the mediums of drawing, collage, animation, projection and sculptural installation.
Goodyear has exhibited at The Lowry in Salford, The Freud Museum in London and The Drawing Center in New York amongst many others and has recently had a major solo exhibition at The New Art Gallery, Walsall. Her most current work involved the use of found imagery – such as historical cuttings and anonymous portraits – as a vehicle to extract figures from the past and re-imagine them.
In a specially-commissioned collaboration with the BBC Philharmonic and Laura Bowler, she will be participating in an audio-visual performance at Salford Cathedral, offering you a glimpse into her dream-like and sometimes unsettling world.
