Brooke Erin Goldstein

Artist Statement:

I have always been fascinated by color. For years now through my drawings I have been exploring the power that color has on our emotional experience. Working with silkscreen, digital printing, quilting and graphite/ink drawing has allowed me to experiment with this concept. In conjunction, I have developed my own visual language using symbols I’ve created and defined. This allows me to not only examine color’s impact but also the effect of narrative and repeating pattern by the arrangement of the motifs. My goal as a visual artist is to convey a relatable, emotive involvement with the viewer. This connects us all in the human experience of love, passion and of course pain.
