Colin Goldberg has been exploring the intersection of art and technology for over 20 years. He earned his undergraduate degree in Studio Art from Binghamton University, NY and an MFA in Computer Art from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Colin’s Jewish and Japanese ancestry sparked interests in Gematria, a Kabbalistic system of numerology and Shodo Calligraphy, which his grandmother practiced, initiating important cultural and stylistic influences in his work. ‘Techspressionism’ is the name Colin has given to his visual language, a hybrid of handmade and electronically generated elements that blends technology and expressionism. His works reside in numerous private collections, as well as the permanent collection of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in Springs NY. Colin is a recent recipient of grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and The New York State Council on the Arts. His technology-fueled work has been exhibited at Manhattan’s Equitable Art Gallery in NY, the Manhattan Armory, the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton NY, and at galleries and art fairs across the United States including artMRKT Hamptons, the Boston CyberArts Festival, and Fountain Miami.
