More Information

Like earlier abstract expressionists who poured themselves physically and emotionally into their work, Goldberg was interested in the mark of the painter and the act of painting. To him, process was as important as the end result. His improvisational practice resembled the jazz music he loved, in which movement, fluidity and beauty flow spontaneously from the artist's hand.
