Goldberg (b. Auckland) graduated from Elam in 1961 with honours, and was was awarded the Joe Raynes Scholarship in her final year. Goldberg worked in the borderland between abstract and representational art. Without making reference to precise shapes, she conveyed the flavour of the particular landscapes. Her abstract paintings are acclaimed, they feature birds and were recently produced in James McNeish's book "An Albatross Too Many." Working in oil she constantly experimented with different techniques. She created interesting effects by washing paint off with turpentine; a process called decalcomania (also used by the Surrealists), in which paper is used to apply paint by taking impressions from paint layered on board. Her favourite tones were burnt sienna and olive - giving her paintings a certain glow. Her work is also owned by the University of Auckland, Victoria University of Wellington, the Ford Motor Company and New Zealand consulates in Washington, Tokyo, New York and Canberra.
