Born in 1958 in Los Angeles, Jeffrey Gold studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, receiving his BFA degree in 1983.
A Forum Gallery artist since 1993, Gold continues to live and work in Los Angeles where he has also been exhibited by Koplin Gallery and Robert Berman Gallery. His Still Life with Lemons was included in Representing LA, an exhibition which originated at the Frye Art Museum in Dec., 2000 and traveled to the Laguna Art Museum and South Texas Institute for the Arts.
Focusing on the nude, and in particular the female body, Gold employs dramatic chiaroscuro to generate introspective portraits of his subjects poised in powerfully balanced compositions. A quiet beauty permeates each of these portraits, capturing the imagination and gently disclosing a veiled aperture into the psyche of each sitter. Likewise, Gold’s elaborate still lifes project a similar pristine elegance.
Jeffrey Gold’s work is in the collection of Jim Carrey and Annabeth Gish and other important collections of contemporary figurative painting throughout the United States.
