Acrylic on cardboard
21" X 62"
Homeless – Tel Aviv, Israel
Five-foot painted cardboard panels zoom in for intimate portrayals of people, setting and circumstance; juxtaposed moments in time. Each its own “slice of life."
"Barry Goldstein’s “Slice of Life” show at the Montpelier Arts Center is beautifully rendered and softly touching. He gently reaches in to the very essence of connection and humanity. From his soft painterly strokes depicting a religious father blessing his son to a homeless man asleep on the street surrounded by his sparse possessions, we feel the depth of soul in each stroke of the brush — the threads that bind us together as members of the human family."
