Jack Goldstein

One of the first graduates of the California School of Fine Arts, Jack Goldstien was known for his experiments in film, sound and performance art. In 1974, he moved to New York where he had his first show in 1981. He often made use of commercial production techniques or isolated bits of Hollywood films such as creating a continuous loop of the roaring MGM lion.

In the late 1970s, he focused on painting and did works ranging from images of lightning storms, volcano eruptions and World War II battles to abstractions based on astronomy.

The artist, age 57, committed suicide on March 14, 2003 at his home in San Bernardino, California.
