Last Saturday, February 16th Sikkema Jenkins hosted an exhibition walkthrough with Brenda Goodman & John Yau on the occasion of Goodman's solo exhibition: In a Lighter Place. 

From the Press Release:
Since 2011, Goodman has transformed and synthesized aspects of her earlier work, as well as inspiration from such movements as Surrealism, Expressionism, and Symbolism, and artists as diverse as Hieronymus Bosch, Alfred Kubin and Philip Guston, into something recognizably hers. At the same time, the torment pulsing through Goodman’s work seems to have loosened its grip on the artist.
