Alison Goodyear

Alison Goodyear, recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2022-23), is an artist, freelance educator, and independent PhD researcher (UAL 2017). Goodyear works within an expanded understanding of the painting and drawing tradition; utilising XR technologies, collaborating with multiple groups and institutes, testing what can be understood as painting and drawing today. Her practice evolved through a residency at Vertigo VR, a Milton Keynes gaming centre, where Goodyear experimented with Tilt Brush and Vive VR headsets to produce virtual abstract paintings (V-AB paintings). New avenues being explored include collaborative ways of making virtual paintings, working with the public, choreographers, and dancers, as initiated whilst she was Digital Participatory Artist in Residence at QUAD Gallery, Derby (2023).
