Rebekah Goldstein makes paintings that depict imagined structures and spaces. As they ignore laws of gravity and perspective, these are structures that could only exist within the world of a painting. The boundary between depiction and the abstract is central to her investigation, resulting in an image that fluctuates between the familiar and the undecipherable.
Goldstein received an MFA from California College of the Arts in 2012, and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 2004. She has recently had solo exhibitions at Cult | Aimee Friberg Exhibitions (San Francisco), Jack Geary Contemporary (New York) and 100% Gallery (San Francisco). Her work has been shown widely across the Bay Area including at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, City Limits, George Lawson Gallery, Pro Arts, and Berkeley Arts Center. She has been awarded residencies at the Sam and Adele Golden Center for the Arts, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, and the Arad Arts Project. Her work is part of the permanent collection of Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, as well private collections throughout the Bay Area. She is represented by CULT | Aimee Friberg Exhibitions.
