Powerful paintings by Jeremiah Goodman>
I read about Jeremiah Goodman in the last issue of Frame and immediately became a fan.
Jeremiah Goodman was born in 1922 in New York and started studying arts at the age of 16. He is one of a kind artist who specialized in painting interiors. He has painted the homes of famous people like Ronald Reagan, Richard Rogers, Carolina Herrera and Yves Saint Laurent.
Jeremiah has the ability to communicate the feeling of the interior. When he painted Richard Rogers room he expressed: “Jeremiah, your painting of our living room is as I imagine itâ€¦.”
I love his talent to use light and strong colors to emphasize the feeling of the room. No one makes paintings like this anymore. We are using computers to simulate reality. The results are sterile and anonymous, and there are no emotions in the pictures.
Jeremiah Goodman is 89 years now and still working in his home/office in NYC. And he is still passionate about his work.
