FINDING THE UNIVERSE IN OAXACA
by Gary Goldberg
As he interprets Oaxaca, Goldberg is inspired by the color field painters while remaining true to his vision of Oaxaca by highlighting the city’s ancient patina and depth. Goldberg’s photographs ask the viewer to decipher the image: what am I looking at, what is the scale?
Many of Goldberg’s photographs have been transformed into textiles using a dry felting process at Taller de Afelpado, San Agustín Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico. Each textile is hand made by a team of three artisans, often taking up to three weeks to complete. The wool used is dyed with natural pigments such as cochineal and indigo.
