Iris Goldstein is a Chicago-based artist who has experimented with various sculpture formats. She worked with hand tools to carve wood sculptures alluding to human forms, then moved on to work with plaster and other hardware-store materials allowing her a freedom of expression that belied the humdrum nature of her sculptural tools.
After working for a number of years creating painted plaster wall-relief sculptures, Goldstein more recently has experimented with using colored pencils on paper to see whether she can create a sense of three-dimensional space on paper. This exhibit features a collection of drawings meant to mimic and elaborate on some of her sculptural ideas and is also a mini retrospective of the variety of her earlier work.
