Roni Feldman Optic Shift

Premiere website builder Made With Color and Beautiful/Decay team up each week to bring you some of the best contemporary artists and designers using Made With Color to build their sleek websites. Website builder Made With Color helps artists create well-designed and mobile/tablet responsive websites in a few minutes without having to touch a line of code.This week we are pleased to present the work of Roni Feldman.

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.

Savannah, Georgia based artist and illustrator Kelley Hagemes creates mixed media works that reference various religious and mythical iconography. Imagery of the sublime is mixed with rich symbolism of life, regret, death, and the unknown.I

When I was a kid I had to go to Catholic school for a period of time, and my parents made were quite the Catholics. I feel like I was always surrounded by these images of the Sublime, dripping with symbolism and encased in ornament. Images of things that were supposed to be beautiful but also strike some sort of fear or uneasiness in you.

More broadly Kelley’s work is about dealing with lifes demons, finding happiness after sadness, transformation and strength while having to find beauty in some pretty ugly places throughout the process.

Sponsored Post: Football And Changing Defenses

Football and the defence sector have a lot in common. For example, they both need a strong defence, potent attacks and a capable captain organising everything. NATO Review tries to show how recent changes in the defence industry would look if they were played out on the football pitch.

The defence industry has a new area it needs to defend – itself. With budgets low or falling in many places, with several new entrants into the market, and with a whole new array of non-traditional threats to guard against, ‘business as usual’ in the defence industry is under attack on several fronts. Can the industry adapt to survive? Watch the video below to find out more.
