Piece description from the artist
During the Spring of 2020 I began a series of work inspired by the pandemic. Under the broad term, Microbiota, these pieces strove to make something beautiful out of a tragic situation. Inspired by microbiology, the images portray a hidden world that might be viewed with a microscope.
Over 30 years ago Steven P. Goodman started his art career as a painter but in 1990 he put away his brushes and began concentrating solely on digital imagery. Using the computer as a tool, Steven attempted to express his political, spiritual, and humanistic concerns. Inspiration ranged from a particular moment in his life to an event taking place on the world stage. He tried, however, to keep the work open-ended enough to allow personal interpretation on the part of the viewer. Steve saw his role as a visual artist as that of a poet but instead of using words he composed with images, combining them in unique ways to create a personal statement.
