Shosh Goller
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: As a creative artist I aspire to engage, communicate and inform. What excites me most are letters and words. Having started my career as a printer at newspapers, I marvel to this day at the beauty of type giving meaning to words, sentences and paragraphs that form precise columns separated by white spaces across a broad sheet, tabloid, website page, magazine or book. Words are the source of misunderstandings, wrote the early 20th Century French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, but in me and my art, they give meaning to life. In one work, I drew the lines of our daughter’s face and sunglasses with words that reflected the conflict in her head over whether to become a neuroscientist or a personal trainer. A three-dimensional Washington Monument-like structure I made of chipboard with a glue gun features headlines relating the deaths inflicted because of senseless American gun laws. A typeface I designed with a casino in mind is made up of pennies. The coins form the word SLOT, the name I gave to my first typeface. My openness to variety in people, ideas and working in different media emerges from my experience in life as a wanderer. Growing up, I attended 12 different schools, my parents lured by the novelty of new places. As an adult, I’ve had the privilege to live on three continents. I relish the many different experiences I’ve had across the globe and look forward to future wanderings, artistically as much as geographically.
