  • Catalogue Essay

    After studying under John Baldessari at CalArts in the 1970s, Jack Goldstein left Los Angeles and arrived on the New York art scene as a radical new force. His body of work at the time consisted of experimental works in a wide variety of new media, mainly film. After involving himself in movements such as Neo-Pop and Neo-Geo, in the late 1980s Goldstein turned his attention to painting. This new body of paintings comprised abstract images of natural phenomenon, science and technology. Like his mentors, Goldstein’s paintings are intentionally abstract in form and open to interpretation by the viewer. His specific focus on technology and seismic activity blurs the subject matter he is capturing. Is the painting simply a picture of a naturally occurring event, or is there a metaphysical layer to it? These are the questions Goldstein’s abstractions present us with. With its thermographic tones and hues, Untitled (1988) captures the essence of his focus on science as an attempt to
    comprehend the world around us.
