Lisa Goedert takes her inspiration from scientific line-drawings and mathematical illustrations. She loves the simple beauty of the Line. While she mostly works in an automatism fashion, she will later “go back in” and labor over capturing a certain rhythm to a line. Its thickness, curvature, and relationship to other forms are crucial in her work.
Goedert also communicates using organic forms. Ovals and circles can symbolize the smallest of stones to the greatness of the cosmos. Seedy-like sprays of dashes and dots also add a visual rhythm and vibration. Goedert grew up near grassy fields with reedy ponds. These natural forms feel like math to her.
