Texas native, Bryan Gooding, is a self–‐taught assemblage artist who moved to Lopez Island as a permanent resident in 2016. He began making art in 2003 during a change in his career and has used it primarily as therapy. His work reflects his curiosity with the ironic oddities and metaphors of life. A finished piece can be a complex image within a box that has an obsessive twist. Finished pieces can hint at his love of tramp art, prison art and obsessive art. Since college he has been a collector of interesting junk and these found objects can be features in many of his pieces.
“I strive for a feeling of discovery, like some long lost artifact from the attic. I like to invoke a sense of mystery and wonderment.” – Bryan Gooding
