Audrey Goldstein

Audrey Goldstein is a sculptor whose work has been frequently exhibited in Boston. Recently she participated in the DUMBO Arts Festival in Brooklyn NY.  Her work has received awards from the International Association of Art Critics and the Traveling Scholars Award from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. She participated in the Traveling Scholars Exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts with two major installations. She is the Fine Arts Program Director at the New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk University. To explore the significance of the differences between the real and the virtual, Goldstein includes both in her multimedia sculptures. The artist uses the dimensional illusion of drawing and painting as part of the sculpture to replicate adjacent forms through shading and a realistic use of color. Wood grain is painted on gesso areas next to real wood and dark woolen lobes. An actual bump is paired with a drawing of a bump which looks even more rounded because of the highlights and shading which depict the form under dramatic lighting conditions.
