Nancy, more than any artist I know expresses and embraces the four dimensions of the three-dimensional world we see and live in.”

For 35 years I have been developing a personal way of making art. Combining graphic, photographic, and projected material, I produce work that appears as a non-narrative series of images or what I have called foto-projections*.

My foto-projections suggest the intricate nature of human perception by re-ordering visual information to propose irreconcilable time frames, shifting vantage points, changing moods, and memory traces.   Each image represents one of the many possible ways of evoking a place or a moment; and the series altogether suggests the complex way we experience the world. Some of the series have been presented as large-scale time-based installations in which the images dissolve and fade into each other. Seen this way, the sequence seems to excavate a real or imagined archaeological site thereby slowly revealing a rich sedimentation of an irrecoverable past.

I devise a low relief collage based on pencil sketches. Using multiple slide projectors, I project fragments of relevant slides that I have taken onto the collage. Using a large format camera I photograph the model with the superimposed projections to produce “foto-projections.” Each image has the same collage as its background but is layered with distinct slide information to suggest various modes of looking—contemplation, rumination, or reverie.

“Goldring was among the very few women working between art and architecture in the early 1970s, and in many ways helped to open the area for more women.”
