Showcasing paintings, small ceramic objects and works on paper by Glenn Goldberg, a prolific New York-based painter, in this new exhibition.
The exhibition focuses on the artist's intimate relationship with nature, a theme present throughout Goldberg's decades-long career. It features his most recent paintings completed within his Brooklyn studio.
The works in the exhibit have a common feature: his ever-present dots over light washes of color creating multiple layers within each composition. Goldberg's signature marks not only structure the space, but also are a record of his concentrated attention, time and devotion. His work ethic is apparent in the extraordinary details of layered textures he achieves. This, in addition to their intricacy and layers of meaning, makes Goldberg's work appeal to many. Looking at a signature work such as Plume (2016), one finds elements such as a mandala, flower form and leaves, all delineated using dots and stencils that even reference Australian aboriginal painting.
