Mixed Media Fine Artist I Director-Skylight Gallery NYC

I’m originally from Palm Springs, CA, which in hometown lingo makes me a Desert Rat. I graduated with honors from the University of Redlands, CA and received my MFA from MICA, Mount Royal Gradual School Of Art, Baltimore. My studio is in the historic Hudson Valley, NY, which heavily influences my artworks. I’m currently the Gallery Director for Skylight Gallery NYC on West 29th. I exhibit my art extensively in NYC, in Germany and in the contemporary art town of Beacon, NY, as well as nationally and internationally in galleries, museums, and in private and public collections. I currently sit on the council for the international artist coalition, Mirca Art Group and I’m the PR Director for Beacon Artist Union.

As a mixed media artist, the fluidity of line meandering through deep layers of watery, pooling resin is my visual language. I paint about bodies of water in all of its fascinating states. I use new and unlikely materials, combining them at times with traditional art mediums, pushing those materials constantly into new forms.

Ripple Effect

New Works by Carla Goldberg

When I was a little kid I thought water came magically from the kitchen sink and collected in swimming pools. I was endlessly fascinated by the cool aqua colors and weird patterns of light dancing on the surface and just below, bouncing off the bottom of the pool. I’ve always been drawn to bodies of water and shimmering, moving light.

Ripple Effect is a new mixed media series of paint, ink and resin on acrylic that came about while watching my children dropping balls into a kiddie pool and skipping stones across the Hudson River. Ripple effect plays with the idea of light and shadow, hinting of summer’s cool aqua ease. They are an exploration of water surface, deep shadow, dancing light, and of childhood memories of time spent happily spacing out over water.
