"To see far, is one thing... going there is another." (Constantin Brancusi)
Using a minimalist vocabulary and a reductive aesthetic that emphasizes the importance of space, rhythm, structure, and relations, I make works of art that are concrete and essential approximations of my own emotional and intellectual experiences. The work reflects my interests in architecture, music, science, sculpture, and painting as well as the threads of commonality that run between them.
"We are star-stuff contemplating the stars." (Carl Sagan)
Connie Goldman maintains a reductivist formal vocabulary, producing clearly described forms in single colors, albeit in eccentric relationship to the angled shapes of the canvases themselves. For all their starkness, Goldman’s paintings, if anything, temper rather than agitate the eye; indeed, they can function as objects of contemplation whose presence infers harmony and balance. This is not the aggressive, obdurate Minimal Art theorized in the 1960s, but the transcendent minimalism explored earlier, at least as far back as Malevich. Goldman does not freight her icons of absence with spiritual import; but in their resonance they can provide something of the perceptual shift we associate with metaphysical insight.
