Looking at art is a lot like being a treasure hunter or explorer, except the riches lie in hidden meaning and unexpected form.This rings true especially when viewing the work of Los Angeles artist Roni Feldman whose fascinating paintings are a visual game of hide and seek. As you look closer at his paintings faces and bodies appear and disappear creating a wondrous abyss of camouflaged narrative. In his portraits famous explorers of the mind and cultural icons are juxtaposed with various explorations of paint asking the viewer to become a visual explorer themselves.
Feldman’s allover black paintings appear to be black and white but are actually created from glossy, transparent varnish airbrushed onto a matte, black surface. The figures may be invisible from certain perspectives, but are revealed as the viewer moves through the gallery space. Much like how all colors of paint combine to form black and all colors of light make white, his numerous, luminous figures meld into an abstract field. Tension forms between individual and crowd, uniqueness and difference, abstraction and representation.
