This piece was inspired by two underlying influences: The beautiful geometric structures and patterns of Czech artist Zdeněk Sýkora; And the Chaos Theory stating that random disorder and irregularities are actually governed by underlying patterns and deterministic laws.
Sometimes life seems chaotic and random. You have a plan, but it doesn't always work out. All you can do is try to organize the chaos and look for the patterns that work for you.

Dalia Goldberg is a self-taught pen and ink artist based in the Austin area, Texas, USA. She makes hard-edge abstraction drawings combining fine-line pen techniques and geometric shapes.
“I’m fascinated with the building blocks of our perception and how we process those to understand our environment, mentally and emotionally. I explore how these impressions connect and interact with each other in shaping our view. In my work I introduce different geometrical elements to emphasize that a configuration of sensory, mental and emotional influences colors our perspective in a certain way.”
Originally from Israel, she moved to the US in 2017. The move brought on new adventures and adjustment challenges that influenced her work.
“As a former psychology student I couldn’t help but linger and analyze the cultural differences I now saw so clearly. The dynamics of these new experiences and ideas have manifested in my art and blossomed into a distinctive voice and style, using lines, patterns and bold black geometric elements.”
Each drawing begins with the intent of expressing a specific concept and the layout is always premeditated based on sketches. Dalia creates a grid that outlines the image. This process mirrors the conceptual notion that life is built of a series of events that molds the way we view different experiences.
“I draw inspiration from my day to day life experiences as well as psychological phenomenas and theories. Artistically my work is influenced and inspired by Kazimir Malevich, El Lissitzky and the Suprematism movement. In addition I have to note my admiration of Agnes Martin for her iconic work with the grid, and Maurits Cornelis Escher for his impossible constructs and remarkable work in the field of optical art.”
