Frederick Goldstein grew up in Westville, Connecticut, just outside of New Haven. He graduated Tulane University eventually moved to South Florida for several years, and is presently living in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
For four decades Goldstein has created sculptures. His pieces are publicly displayed in government office buildings, community art centers, restaurants and small businesses. Goldstein employs unusual welding and forging techniques used to shape, construct and give the sculptures unique, imperfect textures. The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, finding beauty from imperfection, has always intrigued the artist.
“I invite people to look at my work and view the pieces from their own perspective and life experience. My sculptures may communicate with you. Most of my sculptures purposely have no name, so as not to influence what others see.“
