Zvi Goldman, Sculptorwww.ArtPal.com/zvigoldman
I developed a love for wood early in my life, picking up scrap pieces of wood and making creations out of them. My artistry was dormant for a while until later in life when I was inspired to take up wood sculpting professionally. After a period of mentorship with the sculptor Sara Aldouby, I began to design and sculpt independently.
Each work is its own being and an expression of deep reflection, my “Thoughts in Wood.” Topics related to human experience and condition inspire me. I draw ideas from my education and experience in life sciences, engineering, business and just life.
I apply an holistic abstract approach to my work; outlines are flowing and connected, sculptures are complete from all directions, and, the bases are an integral part of the sculptures. I don’t do series and I don’t improvise on others’ work. Typically, I like to explore new ideas and concepts once, and move on to the next. I don’t believe in perfection, as we are not capable of achieving that.
In most cases, I conceptualize projects in my head first, then on paper, following by experimentation with 3D models. Finally, the wood provides inspiration for the rest. I use a single block of wood in most instances, however, have utilized multiple blocks of wood when the piece calls for multiple textures or grains. I also worked with epoxy clay to create complex concepts.
I hope you will enjoy my art as much as I have enjoyed creating it. My work is available for exhibits or purchase. Please contact me for details if you are interested, and visit be on www.zvigoldman.com.
