Sausalito - Artist Wendy Goldberg

 Wendy Goldberg - San Francisco Bay Area California Landscape Artist


Artist Statement

I use the landscape as a springboard. From it I distill what is mysterious, ephemeral and often dreamlike--nuances of fog, rain and quickly changing weather or the play of dark form/mass against brilliant light.

Most, therefore, are portraits of a particular place or time of day where or when shadows are deep and the light is intense or uncommon. The experience of working on-site in these constantly changing conditions becomes an integral part of the piece.

I am especially attracted to the drawing medium for its immediacy, for its capacity to capture oneís initial emotional response. The drawings stand alone as finished pieces; however, I often bring them back to my studio for further reflection and refinement or as references for larger drawings, monotypes and paintings.

Most recently, Iíve been working on a series of night scenes both rural and urban. Objects and images which by daylight seem incidental and commonplace, become simplified and extraordinary at night under limited or artificial light. These result in compositions that speak as much about form and abstract shape as they do about atmosphere and essence.
