Ken Goshen is a NY-based visual artist, integrating traditional painting techniques and contemporary art practices. His primary media are oil, pastel, charcoal, graphite, and printmaking.
Goshen’s work is an exploration of the function of representational art objects in an era of digital image ecstasy. It touches on the dissonance between the fragility of memory and the severity of documentation, highlighting the role subjectivity plays in shaping perceptions of the “real.” By bringing together classical techniques and present-day outlooks, Goshen seeks to compose pieces embodying both the weight of nostalgia and an exhilaration of the unexplored.
