Eugenie Goldschmeding (1970) was trained as an artist in Amsterdam and Paris. A selection of her otherworldly works on paper and sculptures – carrying titles such as Rapunzel’s Delight, Found Forest or Mirror Mirror – has now been brought together in a handsome monograph published by California State University Fullerton.
In sensitive lines and in multi-layered paintings on paper (in which previously rejected works may return) Goldschmeding evokes an enchanted world full of appearing and disappearing creatures and shooting and withering growths. A delicate and unstable world that appears to be on the verge of disappearing itself, twisting and turning to the point of inducing vertigo.
