Susan J. Goldman
(American b. 1981)
Susan J. Goldman is an artist, master printmaker, filmmaker, and teacher. Goldman received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Indiana University-Bloomington in 1981 and her Master of Fine Arts from Arizona State University-Tempe, in 1984. Since completion of graduate school, Goldman has always had a working studio, and other artists have always sought her out to either train them or assist them to produce their work. After moving to Washington in 1990, Goldman taught printmaking at the Corcoran College of Art and Design, MICA, Georgetown University, while simultaneously working for ten years as a Master Printer and Program Director at Pyramid Atlantic (a non-profit center for papermaking and printmaking). Goldman developed many wonderful relationships with artists with whom she had printed with over the years.
Susan began Lily Press® as a private studio in 2000. In 2006 she realized her first collaborative projects, co-publishing an edition of linocuts with Elizabeth Catlett, producing monotypes and screen print editions with Michael Gross, and in 2010, four suites of etchings with Renee Stout and a portfolio of etchings with Jake Muirhead. From 2000-2012 was Adjunct Professor and Master Printer for Navigation Press at George Mason University-Fairfax, printing for artists William T Wiley, Enrique Chagoya and Karen Kunc. Since 2012 Goldman sustains a full time vibrant studio practice working with many artists including Renee Stout, Preston Sampson, EJ Montgomery, Eve Stockton, Miriam Morsel Nathan, and most recently, Sam Gilliam. Susan produces and exhibits her own work nationally and internationally. Her work is in private and public collections worldwide.
She is Founding Director of Printmaking Legacy Project®, a non-profit dedicated to the documentation, preservation and conservation of printmaking practice and history. Goldman received a National Endowment for the Arts Grant 2011-12, as producer and director of Midwest Matrix ®, an hour-long documentary videotape DVD on the fine art printmaking tradition of the American Midwest. With Lily Press®, Goldman as Artistic Director, has created a studio where printmaking can continue to survive, as well as thrive, and has provided a place of community for artists. In doing so, Goldman has established herself as a valuable player in the future of the print.
The tradition, both old and revived, in which I work is the art of the print. I am an artist most fluent in monotype, intaglio, screenprinting, and woodcut. Also as a master printer I guide other artists in these processes.
My earlier prints include figures and objects in imagined landscapes and still-lives, filled with a mélange of iconography from the ancient past. Derived from many historical sources, I arranged these images into a context that at once felt rhythmic and graphic. The scale was usually large, relating to human size. It is more than coincidence that this first shift in my work occurred after I gave birth to my own daughters and after travels to the Mediterranean region. I was very intent on dealing with the theme as woman as a vessel.
These vessels are metaphors for life. They began with an interest in ethnic women’s forms-African, Cycladic, Egyptian, the subjects of ancient urns and vases. The pure, rich colors and clearly modeled forms reflected the music and richness of these ancient universal female ancestors. Then the focus shifted and the images transformed to the women themselves as vessels: literally bearing and containing new lives and new identities. Drawing on a myriad of female forms, welcoming the fact that these earlier feminine icons have cross-cultural significance, often appearing as popular design motifs, these images served as shared shorthand for the interrelationship of all things.
In many of my monotypes and woodcuts, inspired by Morocco, vessels swirl and careen, dissolving into each other, into shadow, and into light. Hand-stamped patterns, both organic and geometric, both define forms and defy forms - signifying how visual variety both creates and blurs boundaries. These vessel prints are a marvelous commentary on human nature and the nature of beauty: no matter how much are brains have supposedly mutated as a result of advertising, infinite graphic bombardment, and new technology, a hand-pulled impression on paper of some gold/blue/brown/pink pitchers has the power to catch our eye and hold our hearts. I feel that through these types of images, I am expressing my feelings about the continuum of the human experience and its connection to the present.
In my current work, I am exploring the visual power of color and the symbolism of the circle. The inspiration for this new direction came from a popular app, Candy Crush. These prints are inspired by the candy featured on the game as well as memories of candy bought and consumed over numerous summer beach vacations. The pure pleasure of beautiful licorice candies, geometrically and colorfully delectable have inspired this work. The simplicity of candy, both in its literal sense and in its appearance on popular social media apps, has brought me into a rich and mysterious study of the history of the circle. The circle with its center than can be attached to the center of a candy and the center of the universe.
The circle has many interesting associations and appears in a number of artistic forms: the halo, the rainbow, the ring, the wheel, and the circle dance mandala. In Sanskrit, Mandala literally means circle and center or "Holy Circle", and is essentially a vehicle for concentrating mind. Jung states that in considering the symbol of the circle, "we are analyzing the self." Joseph Campbell says, "The circle on represents totality. Everything within a circle is one thing, which is encircled, enframed, that would be the spatial aspect. But the temporal aspect of the circle is that you leave, go somewhere, and always come back. The circle suggests immediately a completed totality, whether in time or in space."
An ever enduring image the circle, explored by so many artists from Sonia Delaunay, Judy Chicago, Robert Smithson, Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, the idea never grows old. To scale, my prints of targets and totems are life size, composed with deeply saturated hues. These prints invite the observer to delight in one of the great primordial images of human kind.
