Kim Goldberg

b. 1971, Kansas City, MO

I'm an artist, graphic designer and art director based in Fort Worth, TX. I graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a focus in sculpture and new genres art and have 20+ years of experience (Gallup, Inc. for 17 years followed by Ervin & Smith Advertising & PR). In 2009 I became an independent designer collaborating with a diverse group of clients. 

While I'm passionate about art and all things visual I also have an innate drive to make a difference and am an active volunteer in several non-profits. Over the past 10+ years I've developed numerous art and community programs that focus on creative ways to connect people. A gypsy at heart, I embrace travel and new challenges with excitement. My mantra: creativity, collaboration, change, responsibility, and a good cup of coffee.

Thoughts on Art & Design...Art, an innate passion, Design, a practical application of creativity with a focus on problem solving. Art, Design and Brand Development have been a part of my life for 20+ years. Creating has been a constant since I was a child and my attempt to find the true essence of a subject, using my instincts and subconscious. *Immediacy, gesture, experimentation and collaboration with materials are all important to this approach. As my paintings evolve, they take on a certain life of their own, at which point I facilitate the process and act as an arbitrator, deciding which structural elements deserve more or less prominence. *Inspired by Bill Claps, It's All Derivative


In the 2009 and 2012 I participated in the Israeli Festival for Alternative Theater in Akko Israel, co-creating multimedia dance and video performances with Israeli dancers. These original works toured the U.S. and Budapest, Hungary. In January 2013, I exhibited a series of 80 paintings on paper at the Haifa Rappaport Performing Arts Center. I've been a five-time participant in the Partnership2Gether Artist in Residency program in the Western Galilee.

Recent Work: The Texas Sky Series Design, in many ways, is about being consistent. Consistency is necessary to promote a brand or market a product, but at times can be suffocating. Moving to Texas several years ago, I was immediately fixated on the expanse of the Texas sky and its diverse cloud formations. Since that time I've taken thousands of no-filter photographs of the sky using my iPhone. Responding to the imagery, the photo/content combinations in this series are created by arranging photographs (without retouching the imagery) in varying configurations, at times, using text as its own material to influence the viewer’s quest to find meaning in the works. While the images used are consistently of the same subject, the process of rearranging them allows me to create new, unique forms and meaning and frees me from the limitations so often imposed by the need for consistency.
