Central to Dryden Goodwin's practice is a fascination with drawing which is often combined with photography, film and large screen-based installations.
Dryden Goodwin studied at The Slade School of Fine Art and lives and works in London. Having built an international reputation for his work with both still and moving images Goodwin investigates the way we interact physically and psychologically within public spaces. Through video, film, sound, drawing and photography his work has focused on exploring how strangers connect with each other in public environments and how the camera's eye can disclose, amplify and often influence these connections. His works are poetic celebrations of individuality and humanity, highlighting intimate moments and gestures against the backdrop of a shifting evocative urban landscape.
He has shown widely nationally and internationally including recent exhibitions at Feldman Gallery, Portland, Oregon, USA; Stephen Friedman Gallery, London; National Portrait Gallery, London; Chisenhale Gallery, London; New Art Gallery, Walsall, UK; Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester; and Tate Britain, London.
