Roxanne Goffin

Roxanne Goffin is an artist currently completing her MA at University of Western England. Her series Disembodied combines paper cutouts layered over experimental etchings using paint stripper on acrylic plates to create an effect similar to traditional acid etching techniques.

I am fascinated by the way the cut forms interact with the random patterns created by the chemical reaction on the plate. The patterns remind me simultaneously of landscape and decomposition. The way the cut paper creates such fine borders and edges around the space yet seem to hover over or create a surface above the chaos. I love the idea of internal chaos whcih suggests both the anxiety of society in dealing with topics of death and the chaos resulting from mans attempt to place rigid forms upon the natural.

I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future. Visit her website and have a look at some of her other work.
