Marla Goodman was raised in a rural area near Bozeman, and is a graduate of MSU’s school of art. Her paintings combine elements of kitsch, nostalgia and anxiety, colliding at the intersection of her idyllic, 1970s upbringing and her existential worldview. Goodman’s work has been described as quirky, humorous and mildly apocalyptic. She works in an unused kitchen in her 1930 home, using vintage photos, odd figurines and pop culture images for reference. Goodman likes to dabble in various media, sometimes adding to found canvases, other times painting “from scratch” in acrylic, gouache or oil stick. Her studio will feature recent paintings, cast-off oddities, affordable prints, funky holiday finds and weird little fiber sculptures this December.
