Signed acrylic action drip painting by artist, author, musician, and spiritual teacher EJ Gold. Newly framed.
EUGENE JEFFREY GOLD was born in New York City in 1941. The son of Horace ("H.L.") Gold, editor of Galaxy Science Fiction magazine, he grew up in the company of artists and intellectuals from a wide variety of disciplines: notably Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Charles Laughton, Orson Welles, John Cage, and Merce Cunningham. In the mid 1950's he moved to Hollywood and attended the Otis Art Institute. In the 1960's, he worked as a jazz musician, composer, and as a photographer for Tiger Beat magazine; by the early 1970's, Gold emerged as a sculptor and painter associated with the infamous "California Nine."
E.J. Gold has been a prominent and controversial figure in the Human Potential movement in California for over a quarter century. Although his spiritual teaching and work bears a strong affinity with the "Fourth Way" teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff, Gold also demonstrates an influence of Tibetan tantric teachings. The fundamental emphasis of Gold’s teaching, like that of Gurdjieff, is on the concept of spiritual "work" in daily life, a constant effort to increase and maintain heightened awareness in all activities.
