LYNDA GOLDBERG - INSPIRED BY NATURE


ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is informed by nature. To capture a moment, scene or feeling and to express it through my artwork. 

My monotypes (one-of-a-kind works on paper) are inspired by nature.  I start with an idea or feeling which I express in textures and colors using natural and manmade found objects. I am a tactile person, always touching things and feeling their texture.  Because I am a printmaker I see an item’s potential by how it might appear after color and pressure have been applied. I use monotype, collagraph, chine colle, stencil, stamping, and other techniques to create my work.  

In my paintings I layer and juxtapose various mediums: water soluble oil paints, printing inks, charcoal, pastel, oil pastel, graphite, india inks. It is challenging and exhilarating to see the variations in the handling of subject matter via different mediums and also how one medium influences another.


BIOGRAPHY

Art has always been an important part of my life. It allows me to share my love and wonder of nature and life with others. 

I have exhibited in New England in both solo and group shows, and have received numerous awards.  My work is in many corporate, private, and non-profit collections in the U.S. and abroad.
