Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Claudia Olds Goldie

..."Claudia Olds Goldie portrays mature women with candor. In A Weight Bearing Exercise, the figure wears gym gear and has lifted, with little effort, a barbell satirically bedecked with the accoutrements of the modern “superwoman”: cellular phone, computer keyboard, teddy bear, frying pan, dog bowl, paintbrush, books. Olympic Dust exposes a tired, plump swimmer wearing an old-fashioned swim cap. Goldie’s “girls” are whimsical but not a bit funny. While once we judged women primarily by their sexuality, the criterion has shifted, but is no less harsh, Goldie suggests. The haggard Olympian is the antithesis of the celebrated male athlete, who even in pudgy retirement is paid to tout cars or comment on televised sports events.
