ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

“North Fork Modernism” is a solo exhibition of recent paintings by artist Colin Goldberg at The South Street Gallery in Greenport, New York from May 2-26,2014.

The works in this exhibition were partially funded by a grant the artist received in 2013 from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Last year Goldberg also received funding from The New York State Council on the Arts, and this spring he was awarded a month-long residency at The Studios of Key West, scheduled for 2015.

The artist describes his recent work as “an exploration of dualities: East and West, traditional and digital, abstraction and figuration.”

Goldberg was born in 1971 to parents of Japanese and Jewish ancestry. His unique style integrates traditional drawing and painting techniques with large-format digital printing and computer graphics. The artist holds a BA in studio art from Binghamton University and a MFA from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.

Goldberg’s paintings have been exhibited at the Manhattan Armory, the Parrish Art Museum, the Islip Art Museum, and at galleries and art fairs across the United States. His work is in numerous private collections, as well as the permanent collection of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in Springs NY.

Helen Harrison, director of the Pollock-Krasner House, comments, “Like Goldberg’s, Pollock’s path to an individual creative language involved a synthesis of past and present, taking from each what was appropriate for his purposes.”

The artist currently lives and works in Greenport Village, New York with his wife Donna.
