Early Work
LOIS GOLD'S paintings celebrate the beauty of nature. Large open skies, empty beach paths, moonlit fields, trees silhouetted against planes of vibrant color all are favorite subjects. By careful observation, Gold creates a mood which echoes an inner reality. It is this mood which gives her work weight and allows it to transcend the merely picturesque.

Working in pastel, watercolor and oil pastel, Gold brings out the sensuous and luminous qualities in each of these different mediums. Horizons move up and down. Sandy paths disappear around a bend, acting as metaphors for the mystery of life. They seduce the viewer to enter the picture plane and join the artist on her inner journey.

"The most remarkable characteristic of Gold's work is the intoxicating atmosphere that emanates from her hushed world, where people have momentarily gone elsewhere. There is a secret ingredient to her paintings which distills the beauty of nature and plants it right into your imagination. A rare serenity washes over you as your eyes take you along those fields and paths off into the distance. Lois Gold depicts a world of dreams as well as reality."

Christopher Gow,
Sotheby's

"Realistic to imaginative, but always representational. Her painting, Venetian Light, visible on the exhibitions page (dateline 4.2.2010) does for pastel what Turner did for watercolor."
