About Michael Goodward

Made with a serious smile and a wry mind in Dewsbury, England
Now living and working in Lucerne, Switzerland

A deep wish for continued renewal and re-invention is reflected not least in my activities as an artist. my objects and installations mirror an independent minded, intellectual and emotional panorama which is a direct manifestation of the eclectic, polyvalent and curious way in which I occupy myself with anything that is any way remotely connected with the nature of being and man's interaction with and perception of the world within and without him. My investigation of a diversity of subjects, such as death, religion and existence, is far from scientifically based but relies rather more upon a radically subjective view of me and my surroundings. I have a profound desire to communicate intricate ideas in a concise and reduced, often ironic manner, using a variety of easily (and not so easily) available domestic and adapted (p)re-manufactured materials. the confirmation and extension of self is a central theme in my work.
