Jean-Claude picked up a pencil and paper as a young boy growing up in pre-war Paris. Drawing and painting became his obsession, transporting him away from the frightening events going on around him.
Goldberg continued to pursue his passion throughout the years, eventually renting his first studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the mid 1990s. It was there that Jean-Claude first saw a crushed can radiating through the debris-filled streets. He began by photographing these cans and then painting them. Goldberg still produces these magnificent works. two of them are on display at Bernay Fine Art.
Jean-Claude has shown his paintings at the Art Basel Miami, the Morrison Gallery in Kent, CT, the 212 Gallery in Aspen, CO, Gallery 8 in Paris, and the Yeshiva Museum in Manhattan, NY. He works and lives in the Berkshires.
