Depicting traditional objects in a contemporary manner, Still Life with Artichokes is a perfect example of Betty Goodwin’s early proto-cubist still-life work as she pushes towards an increasingly abstract genre. With a growing interest in found objects and how they hold traces of life, Goodwin constantly permeated her work with issues that concern the individual amid the greater world. No matter how abstract or figurative, or the elusiveness of her theme, the viewer is able to grasp a measure of recognition and significance.
