Sidney Goodman

Sidney Goodman made psychologically difficult content graceful and elegant. He had a visual empathy that translated into work that spoke forcefully about what it is like to be in the body, emotionally, physically, through its transcendent joys, desperate despair, and explosive anger. His work captures all of the contradictions of what it is to be human, articulated in such a way that humanity has dignity no matter what its condition.

-- Robert Cozzolino, Senior Curator and Curator of Modern Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), Philadelphia, 2013
