Rina Goldfield Artist Statement

I paint immenseness and smallness, often together. I paint totems and monuments: huge mountains, blocky buildings, ancient columns. I also paint small onlookers and cohabitors: little worms, agape eyeballs, goofy vegetables. There is a sweep of hugeness, but also of wonkiness and humor.

The scale of the work itself is small-to-medium: I never make an artwork larger than my body. I do not want to physically overwhelm the viewer. This is my “small” feminist rebellion.
In my art practice, then, I try to create power and vastness within a small frame.


Opening Reception: Sunday, October 13 from 2 to 4 p.m.
