ROBERT GOLDSTROM (b. 1953) is a painter who thinks in series, revisiting a compelling motif again and again until it plays itself out.
Born in Detroit, Goldstrom paid his way through the University of Michigan by designing posters around campus. On his last day job-hunting in Chicago, he landed an assignment at Playboy, which led to an award-winning career making posters for the New York City Opera, shopping bags for Bloomingdales, and covers for Time and The New York Times Magazine. Between assignments, Goldstrom started painting for enjoyment, and has since gone full time in that direction.
“I have yet to run out of inspiration. When I stop looking, the ideas will stop coming.”
Goldstrom’s next show is at Rice Polak Gallery in Provincetown, MA. The exhibition runs through September 3, 2020 and features works by Robert Goldstrom, Michael Snodgrass, Blair Bradshaw, and Jennifer Goldfinger.
