Curtis Goldstein is an artist from Columbus, OH. He earned a BFA from The Ohio State University and an MFA from the University of Cincinnati.
Curtis explains his work by saying, “I resist the temptation to use the latest technology in art, by resorting to basic motions of cutting, tearing, and pasting, guided by intuition and spontaneous perception, yet I submit my practice to the materials offered to me by the industry—and my own consumption. Unlike dada that represented the chaos of post-WWI Europe through collage, I show how the advertising companies’ design strategies cohere, promoting uniformity in modernity––and enable me to paint with fragments of paper and plastic.”
