Clark Goolsby's Neon AbstractionsIllustration // Tuesday, 28 Jan 2014
Born in 1980 in Santa Rosa, California, Clark Goolsby creates cacophonic compositions of eye-catching neon colors, geometric shapes and collage. He experiments with elements of surrealism intermingled with abstracted gradients, evoking a sense of innocence in his desire to find a balance between life and death. Though the individual components of each painting are simplistic, the layering and clashing of combined forms creates a feeling of suspense the longer the viewer is looking. Goolsby's work is difficult to categorize, the outcome of a spontaneous and painstaking process. Goolsby lives and works in New York City.
