TOM GOLDENBERG

 b. 1948 / American

Tom Goldenberg (b. 1948) is an American artist, best known for landscape and abstract paintings.[1][2] He has shown throughout the United States and internationally, and his work has been covered by The New York Times,[3] The New Criterion,[4] Art in America,[5] Arts Magazine,[6] Art & Antiques,[7] and The New York Observer,[8] among other publications.[9][10] Critics often note his landscape works for their contemporary interplay of stylization and observation and concern for form over verisimilitude, pointing to his beginnings in abstraction as a foundation that underlies his ordered pictorial structures.[8][11][12][1] In the later 2010s, Goldenberg has returned to abstraction that sometimes suggests interior or "fictive" landscapes.[13][14] The New Criterion editor and writer Roger Kimball described his paintings as leading "double lives, as memorable evocations of rural landscape and tightly organized arrangements of abstract planes of color."[1] Hilton Kramer characterized his work as "deeply mediated by aesthetic reflection" and classical rather than romantic in feeling.[8] Goldenberg and his wife, Michelle Alfandari, have lived in Sharon, Connecticut since 2016, after being based in New York City since the 1970s.[15]
