Latest Exhibition

Jolie Goodman MA has been making art for over 30 years. The exhibition Swimming in the Slow Lane consists of digital prints and paintings about her experience of swimming in local pools including at JAGS Sports Club.

Jolie says:

I swim for health, exercise and because I enjoy it, I always feel better for a swim. I’m not fast. But there is nothing wrong with being slow. I find the experience of my morning swims inspiring. At a stage in my life where my artistic practice is pushed for time the making of digital drawings after swimming has been a way to sustain my practice. Digital prints are very flexible. They can be printed in various sizes. My prints about swimming are installed in the entrance hall of the new Salomons Centre Canterbury ChristChurch University, printed to A0 size.
