Opening Reception for the Artists
Fourth Friday, May 24, 2013
Free and Open to the Public
Elizabeth Goldman will present her solo exhibition, "Squared Off," in the Main Gallery. Goldman will also exhibit works from her earlier and current series, "Tipping Off the Edge" and "Putney," aptly revealing the continuity and development in her work. Goldman states, "Throughout my practice I have explored abstraction through a contemporary lens. In a series of drawings and paintings over the past few years, I have focused on works that mine recollections of early childhood experiences during WWI." Her hybrid works of drawing and painting confront the horrors of aerial bombings in Scotland and her move to a dark and decimated post-war London. She realizes these experiences and creates an almost invisible history by working in material layers. Quasi-geometric forms encounter a gestural field manifesting sentiments of alienation and loss. Goldman comments, "The tension in the work comes not from what is seen but what is not seen."
Elizabeth Goldman is a graduate of VCU School of the Arts (Painting and Printmaking). This is the artistís first exhibition at artspace since her move to New York.
