Introducing Ken Goldman, our 2013 NCSFA Open Show Juror
Ken Goldman
NCSFA Open Show Juror

Juror's Statement:
Painting is a quest for dynamic visual balance.  Therefore, circulating a viewer’s eye throughout a well designed composition is of utmost importance.  Since choice of subject matter (objective, semi- objective or non- objective is not a main concern, 
I work in any style or technique that is best suited to express a particular idea, explore it tirelessly and thrive on the insecurity of not always knowing my next move.
