Denise Bibro Fine Art, in Chelsea, New York presents Carol Brown Goldberg’s, Paintings: The Color of Time. Running from February 5th- March 14th, 2015.
Goldberg’s work is noted for its use of reflective chips nestled among acrylics on canvas. Mesmerizing and colorful, they are almost hypnotic in nature. Subtle yet bold in style, her work is prolific and instantly recognizable.
Goldberg draws much of her inspiration from music, light, geometric pattern, and brightness. When the Vero Beach Museum displayed her work, they described it as such… “Goldberg infuses the surfaces of her canvases with pulverized polymer to intensify her colors and give them an almost Venetian look. Unlike the work of earlier artists whose hard-edged, geometric compositions seem flat and contained, Goldberg’s paintings gather energy and pull viewers into a limitless ‘abstract universe’.” Historian and art critic Donald Kuspit stated her art as “Musical abstractions, acknowledging, as Kandinsky did, that all art aspires to the condition of music, which is abstract and expressive at once…”
Goldberg is from Baltimore, Maryland. She studied at the University of Maryland, where she received a B.A. in American Studies, and the Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C, where she earned her second B.A. and studied under Gene Davis. Upon graduation from the University of Maryland, she was given the Eugene M. Weisz award. She has taught at American University and the University of Maryland. She is also a recipient of the Maryland State Arts Award. Her work has been shown in many solo and group exhibitions, and is in many Museum collections, such as the New Orleans Museum of Art, the National Museum for Women in the Arts and the Kreeger Museum.
