My art reflects the unusual way I see the world. It is highly complex, but beautifully bound by multifaceted minutia that expresses the “secrets objects share.” I feel and see patterns in everything; it brings me great joy to interpret the intricacy of concepts, landscapes and people. Viewers describe my art as obsessive, captivating, stimulating, and totally unique. I am compelled to unleash my creative spirit to inspire others to do the same. Art is a soulful gift and a way to give back.
Currently, I am a full time artist painting every day. Since my paintings are so detailed, many take me a month or more to complete. Most often, my sources of inspiration come from hiking, people, and spiritual ideas. Fortunately, it is a process bound by joy! In addition, I go to life-drawing open studio sessions, workshops, and classes to continuously experiment and expand my consciousness.
Since 1998, I have sold originals and limited edition prints of my paintings, privately, corporately, and commercially. Throughout the years, I have won several awards from the State of New Mexico, Shemer Art Center, AZ, and the Arizona Artists' Guild.
Selma Male Goldman (my mother)
Even though my mom passed away in 1996, she is with me every day spiritually and through her art, which fills my home. Her vast portfolio manifests the essence of greatness expressed in hundreds of paintings, drawings, and sculpture. As a culture, we are privileged to view and appreciate her body of work that spans almost 50 years.
Selma could not remember a time when she did not draw or paint. As a young woman, she went to Traphagen Art School in New York City. Shortly after, she became a sketch artist for Hattie Carnegie, a haute couture fashion designer. At the same time, in 1944, she began her pursuit of fine art. For many years she studied at the Art Students’ League on 57th Street, and later at the New School in Greenwich Village. She was fortunate to work with Anthony Tony, Camillo Egas, Julian Levy, Harry Sternberg, Dora De Vries, Louis Bouche, Chiam Gross, Ed Dickinson, and Joe Wolins.
In 1972 Selma moved to Los Angeles and quickly became involved in the California art scene. She attended many workshops and studied with artists like Barry Reed, Max Turner, Sergei Bongart, Joe Magnani, Ed Butwinick and Hans Burkhardt. In Los Angeles she began to sculpt; working in stone and clay involved her mind, hands, and whole body.
In the late eighties she joined me in Santa Fe, New Mexico, to experience the “Land of Enchantment.” At that time, she also connected with the Shidoni Foundry to showcase her sculpture in bronze.
Selma flourished as an artist throughout her life, leaving us a legacy of art that celebrated the human spirit. Her work is collected and displayed in many homes on both the east and west coasts by people who recognize great art when they see it.
