ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Serge Goldberg and Jean Pless create large abstract oil paintings on canvas at Studio Sixty-Five Ninety- Five in Boulder, Colorado, often painting side by side. They work with variations of carefully chosen palettes of single pigment fine quality oil paints. Their paintings typically depict the tension between the search for liberation and a response to everyday life experiences.
Serge feels the influence of music, travel, and intense experience in the outdoors experiences in the creation of nonrepresentational images that make some sort of sense, at least to himself.
Jean creates an abstract response to the music in the room, the places she’s been, the things she’s seen, and her life in the mountains.
They enjoy sharing the process of creating the many details of their work, from making big paintings to stretching the paintings on frames they build in the studio.
Serge and Jean invite an intuitive response to the viewing experience. They ask viewers to bring their own interpretations and sensibilities, and to look at each piece with fresh eyes.
