Stanley Goldstein, Summer, 2008, acrylic on paper
Stanley Goldstein can find the exotic in the ordinary. He looks at a crowd in an illuminated bus shelter at night and thinks it is as stirring and mysterious as anything imaginable. Painting the familiar world allows the artist to discover his connection to things, and also to explore their connections to one another.
Goldstein’s richly applied paintings are infused with the drama of light, which serves to set the stage and the tone for these relationships, becoming like little dramas unfolding before us. Goldstein in entranced by how the world of tangible, separate things can be bound together in a fabric of light. And whatever story he has to tell, Goldstein is most compelled by how the subject dissolves into the light and space.
