Susan Goldman
American,

Susan Goldman’s woodcut prints draw from the history of art, mankind, and archetypal representations of femininity. “I borrow images from historical sources and arrange them into a context that’s both rhythmic and surreal. This is how the figure of a woman can be revealed in the shape of an ancient vase, and how layers of colors and images can suggest the continuum of the human experience,” writes Goldman. In her “Target” series, Goldman alludes to artists such as Kenneth Noland and the totemic sculptures of Anne Truitt. In another series featuring images of vessels and flowers, Goldman resurrects archaic natural and manmade forms that resemble goddesses and heroines. The patterned, multicolored layers, reminiscent of the work of Philip Taaffe, create psychedelic reminiscences of ancient times.
