Abigail Lee Goldberger
I am inspired by fairy tales, myths, dreams, memories, experience, longing, religion, and nature so the images themselves tend to be fantastical and myth-like. I love outsider art, collages and printmaking. These styles also inform my work, so that rather than hone my technique to make the most lifelike image possible, instead I explore skewed angles, odd placements of characters within the landscape and a landscape itself that has a personality and defies what we know of the ways in a which a world is supposed to work. All of these elements come together and a painting is finished once I find that I have created a harmony of images, colors, textures, personalities and emotions that feels like a glimpse into another world.
