Glenn Goldberg @ Charlie James

Image coming soon.

Daniel Gerwin reviews Glenn Goldberg: Somewhere at Charlie James Gallery, Los Angeles, on view through October 15, 2016.

Gerwin writes: “As I stood among his paintings, I became physically aware of a subtle conflict between sensual thrill and intellectual restraint… In ‘Okay (Blue)’ a rubber ducky shares the foreground with a highly stylized vertical stalk of plant, vaguely resembling bamboo, while the background is done in quiet pastels and lots of tiny dash marks… While painting a rubber ducky would seem to leave little choice but exaggerating the clichĂ© in the ironic voice prevalent among younger artists, Goldberg manages to sublimate those associations and give the image new life through formal abstraction.”
