Ghosts and the Clothes they Wear: Mike Goodlett's Life with Art
In a fourth installment of UnderMain's artist studio visits funded by The Great Meadows Foundation, Keith Banner unfolds the never-ending installation that is the art of Kentucky artist, Michael Goodlett. Together the writing and the artwork in this essay make manifest what Banner sees as one of the truest purposes for art making: "Making art, whoever is making it, weaves the inner-world into the outer-world in a way that allows you to recover and replenish and continue." Enjoy a little recovery time.

UnderMain started making studio visits many years ago. Jim Fields, Christine Huskisson and Art Shechet were the first to open a few doors. This year, our interest in bringing you the inside look at Kentucky artists has grown. Now funded by the Great Meadows Foundation, the project allows us to publish the work of these artists and also to realize the talent of many new writers. Our fourth installment of a twelve part series for 2019 welcomes the brilliant work of Keith Banner.
