Lori Goldberg

My ongoing series ‘Poetics of the Discarded’ serves to open up a dialogue about our relationship to our environment portraying our objects that are discarded and disregarded and end up in garbage sites. Within these sites there are mounds and mounds of history: the detritus of days spent, life and death, business, conveniences used, sentimental things broken and more. My quest is to examine the context of garbage, memory, ordinary objects and social action. Born and living in Vancouver BC, I feel a sharp conflict between industry and nature. My paintings point out that beauty is ephemeral, and what is discard never really disappears.
My work has been shown at major international exhibitions and hangs in many public and private collections. I consistently engage with local communities, building projects that involve art-making as a process of inquiry about climate change. I currently teach at ECUAD, and I am represented by Art Junction Gallery, BC and Philip Josef Glass Art Gallery
