David Richard Gallery is pleased to present Color In Space, the gallery’s first solo exhibition for Washington D.C.-based artist, Carol Brown Goldberg.

These recent paintings are astral-like, conflating lyrical abstraction with Op Art and hard-edged painting to create portals with a view of some great abyss or boundless space beyond. There is neither a predetermined horizontal nor vertical configuration to her paintings as they are “pure abstractions” according to Donald Kuspit in a recent essay he wrote discussing her artwork. Thus, they can be viewed in any orientation. Influenced by her teachers, mentors and peers of the Washington Color School, her paintings are necessarily about color and the manipulation of paint to create translucent veils and opaque structures that provide definition to the portals and allow a view on to something speeding away or towards us — perhaps a mass being pulled by a vacuum in space or a cosmic explosion with debris hurling toward us. Goldberg maintains a tension in these paintings between their vibrant, energetic and colorful presence and the void and emptiness from floating objects and no recognizable forms that makes them seem mystical and transcendent. The titles are personal to Goldberg and somewhat evocative, but ultimately, the viewer must craft a narrative from their own experience to complete the work for themselves.
