A photographic and painted art exhibition by Maurice Goldberg
Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Camperdown
Opens 6pm Wednesday 20th April,
Thursday- Sunday 21 April to Sunday 1 May 10:00am to 4:00pm
Business Review Weekly often listed Maurice Goldberg as CEO of one of Australia's fastest growing companies, but the GFC changed that and a period of radical reinvention ensued. Focusing instead now on mentoring creativity in business thinking, and practising as an artist himself, Goldberg is presenting his first solo art show 'What's Love Got to Do With It' at the Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Camperdown during 20 April to 1 May.
As Goldberg is no stranger to reinvention and transformation, the exhibition looks at identity and the power of love and sexuality to be a transformative, yet equally destructive force in our lives. Using photographs and painted canvases, Goldberg creates a rich and saturated abstract world where the human form is explored. The images are often confronting drawing upon themes of obsession, jealousy, passion, and unconditional love. The style borrows as much from classics like Matisse as it does from dating app selfies in the way that it harnesses digital photographic and projection techniques, hand collage, and traditional figurative painting.
Ultimately the work aims to be sensual, lyrical and inspiring.
