“'Chasing Sophia' means, in a less direct path - Chasing Wisdom. I, as a fragile corrupt human, find grasping wisdom difficult. That is why I’m chasing it.  The images in the work for the show come from a rumative place. These images are simply ways for me to communicate to the viewer and provoke emotion that ties hand in hand with the titles, leading one gently down the path of interpretation. 

I have come to understand that painting is becoming my main way of speaking, and what better way than through direct realism. The less a person has to deconstruction the easier it is to relate - I digress however, this is more the science of image. It is my job to say something. I must speak to people of important things, moral things, things of wisdom, things that can help their lives, things that cause them to think."  Miles Cleveland Goodwin, 2018
