Barry Feldman’s creative career spanning more than fifty years to date includes constructions of many descriptions – box constructions, sculpture, free-standing installations, and in situ works, landscape, still life, and portrait easel paintings in oil on canvas; 3D paintings in oil on woven canvas; watercolors on 3D constructed paper and photography.
“What I make are constructions. I like things, most of them broken and discarded things, which frequently figure in my still life paintings. Often enough, I find myself admiring and holding onto some silly little something that has no possibility of adding anything structural to a painting, but I love it anyway, even more so, as it is completely non-useful. And then I use it – in one of my constructions! For me, painting is the air I breathe, and construction is the wonderful sea into which I take refreshing dives.”
Our relationship with objects is never straightforward but a mixture of knowledge and innocence. Objects are far from being as innocent as John Berger suggested in his book Ways of Seeing, and that is what makes them too interesting to ignore. (Sudjic, 2008: 9).
