(Boston, Mass.)—Paul Cary Goldberg’s photographs, on view beginning November 30 at Boston University’s Sherman Gallery, depict the familiar objects of everyday life, using a radically new photographic technique. Known as “Iris” or “Giclee,” the photographic prints are made using state-of-the-art computer techniques, producing a final image that blurs the boundary between photography and painting.

“Memories in Marblehead, No. II”

The exhibition includes twenty-four recent prints — luminous still lifes of everyday objects. “In essence, they are outward expressions of interior landscapes,” says the artist. “I think of them as lyrical, metaphorical narratives about love and loss, confidence and fear, integrity, isolation, longing, belonging … the human condition.”

The colors of the objects, photographed in natural light, are, according to the Boston Globe’s Cate McQuaid, “unlike any you might see in a photograph … The greens are exquisite: near blue, sweet and seductive against a total black ground.” Art New England Editor Carl Belz recently awarded Goldberg an Honorable Mention in the Cambridge Art Association’s National Prize Show. His work has also been selected for Soho Photo’s 2000 National Photography Competition and for the Bristol Art Museum’s National Juried Show.
