Paul Goldman


My paintings explore themes related to mood, memories, and contemporary life. Most of my work now is done on board, incorporating different styles and subject matter.

Technically, I would describe my work as combining expressionism and a loose form of realism. Thematically, I would say my paintings often suggest a dark, noir kind of narrative - kind of mysterious, kind of sensual, but, also, I hope, fun in a way.

I have studied painting at the Cleveland Museum of Art, Massachusetts College of Art, and the San Francisco Art Institute. Major influences include Edward Hopper and the Bay Area Figurative artists.
