Goldsleger's works are inspired by relationships between location and territory, between micro detail and macro expanse, and between order and chaos. Using a highly nuanced palette of whites, greys, blacks and muted colors, these new works deconstruct reality into the two-dimensional plane.
Although rooted in reality, these mixed media paintings and drawings are constructed in the negative and developed in layers blurring edges and reconfiguring form. Drawing upon eternal themes, these works suggest a sense of beauty and tragedy.
