Contemporary Paintings Of Three Year Old Children By Artist Stephanie Goldman
I Am A Child Exhibition Riverside Art Museum January 19 through March 4, 2006 Reception on February 2, 2006
I am a child, All the world waits for my coming. All the earth watches with interest To see what I shall become. The future hangs in the balance, For what I am The world of tomorrow will be. I am a child, I have come into your world about which I know nothing. Why I came I know not. How I came I know not. I am curious I am interested. I am a child, You hold in your hand my destiny. You determine, largely, whether I shall succeed or fail. Give me, I pray you, Those things that make for happiness. Train me, I beg you, That I may be a blessing to the world. This statement, written in Chinese and English, appears at the entrance to the Guideposts Kindergarten in Hong Kong.

Through years of studying with distinguished professional artists I have integrated the influences from the strongest of these into my palette, brushwork and studio ethic. The value scales of Ken Goldman, the color discipline of Wolf Kahn and realist principles of Nelson Shanks have all contributed to my present sense of aesthete and composition. I use modern materials and techniques with contemporary ideas and classical studio skills to create paintings with visual appeal and emotional content. By harmonizing color, line and form with passion, inspiration and focus I strive to bring new textural intensity to pictorial subject matter. The paintings in this exhibition push the extremes to exaggerate a particular "viewpoint" where the observer becomes an active participant.

Executive Director Statement: Stephanie Goldman “I am a Child”
Stephanie Goldman’s approach towards child portrait painting is truly fresh and unique. One could study the history of painting, and not find another painter that has captured an adult’s perspective/angle of view of children as well as Ms. Goldman. Her painterly technique accurately portrays the innocent and vulnerable qualities of childhood that are universally valued within all communities and cultures. It is an honor for the Riverside Art Museum to exhibit this unique body of paintings that are sure to touch the hearts of viewers, young and old alike. Daniel Foster Executive Director Riverside Art Museum
To the parents, grandparents and teachers of the children. They are our future.
