Introducing New Artist
Susan Goldsmith
Susan Goldsmith, The Reservoir – Central Park, silver leaf with pigment print, oil pastel, oil paint and resin on panel, 25″ x 50″
Susan Goldsmith is an impressionist in reverse. The French avant gardists who radicalized painting a century and a half ago sought to paint the world as the human eye sees it, in the optical grasp of a moment in time and space. Goldsmith upends that process, beginning with the moment and expanding the visual comprehension of that instant into an abstraction of atmosphere, a dissolution of perceived reality into generalized optical excitation. Where Monet painted fields of grain, Goldsmith paints fields of paint. And yet, the eye is no less persuaded, no less invited, no less caressed.
–Peter Frank
Represented by prestigious galleries in San Francisco, CA, New York, NY, Boston, MA and Kansas City, MO, Susan Goldsmith received her BFA in 1977 and MFA in 1992 both from California College of the Arts, Oakland CA.  Susan’s work can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.
