Paola Trevisan said in a review of Goldsmith's work: "...Even the details of the buildings are an extension of emotional impact: they are translated into vibrant colours that, through a sense of synthesis and geometric harmony take us to a higher level of artistic awareness..."
For a long time I have used the imagery of Venice and the Italian landscape, and more recently, Spain. The layered work in oil is abstract yet retains the essence of the images which inspired them. Fragments of buildings and gates can be seen to represent home or a longing for stability, a struggle against the transient nature of life and relationships. I love color and texture and I am always exploring how color and line come together to form the structure of a painting.
