Andrew Goldstein's Thoughts on PAINTING

I love what Andrew Goldstein says about painting (in his interview with Hans Ulrich):

However, when it comes to the market, painting remains the paramount seller because it is, at the end of the day, a remarkably efficient piece of technology. It packs maximum visual power while taking up a minimum of three-dimensional space. No electricity is needed. It’s easily portable, universally readable, effortlessly Instagrammable, and, in some cases, easily resalable.

After a SOLO EXHIBITION

After a solo art show, it seems a month-long nap is necessary. It seems strange to go from being an extrovert (marketing, talking with clients, openings), to an introvert again. My wish is to keep the pace up, and engage with people in the same manner (mainly because it is so much fun), but it just isn't humanly possible. 

My fear is that people will think I don't care about them during this period of hibernation. I do care immensely, and I am incredibly grateful for how supportive people are of my art life. Ultimately, I have to simply trust in the ebb and flow of life. 

Does anyone else have this kind of experience whether it is art-related, or otherwise?

Wisdom from Experience

As an ARTIST at the age of 46, what I know for sure is slow and steady wins the race. I used to burn myself out, running on adrenaline making art nonstop. 

I pace myself now. My work is currently at the framer in preparation for my Augen Gallery July 2016 solo show. I'd like a nap. I used to need to sleep for days after dropping off my work. Oddly enough, I feel I could even start anew...

TRANSFERENCE Print Project at PSU

Mark and Rae Mahaffey of Mahaffey Fine Art studio, assisted the Northwest Patternist artists with the idea of how to print work using a monotype process (a one-of-a-kind print). Out of this experiment, nine artists (including myself) from the Northwest Patternist Group, will show their prints in a show titled TRANSFERENCE

I will show an installation of my cut up monotypes (see image below).
