Evan Goldman

A focus on the art of Evan Goldman

Evan Goldman is a figurative artist based in Bethesda, Maryland. His oil and acrylic paintings range from realism to surrealism and are often narrative. This April, Goldman will have an exhibition of his art at Dacia Gallery in New York City. This exhibit, titled Lost in Dreams, will be the artist’s first solo show in New York.Desi, oil on linen, 46 x 32"

“These paintings show my development over the years,” says Goldman. “As my paintings become more narrative, I want the viewer to see a story behind the painting.”

Goldman has a BFA in painting from Maryland Institute College of Art and an MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art. He also studied under Odd Nerdrum, Robert Liberace and David Gray. Additionally, Goldman participated in the Takt Artist Residency in Berlin, Germany.Alice at Wonderfest, oil on linen, 36 x 48"

Growing up in the suburbs of Washington D.C., Goldman frequently visited the National Gallery of Art where he drew inspiration from the Dutch and Flemish Old Masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens. These classical influences can be seen in his paintings, many of which portray people in a dreamlike state with surreal figures floating around them.

The largest piece in the show, Alice at Wonderfest, alludes to the book Alice in Wonderland that was about a dream. This version, however, portrays the characters as counter-culture revelers at a festival in the woods.

Goldman’s exhibition Lost in Dreams runs from April 4 to 10, with a reception on opening night from 6 to 8 p.m. —
