“Painting is allowing us to see objects as they were once, when

they were looked at with love”

– Paul Valéry

 

“The most precious thing about art is (when it’s inexplicable) its

inexplicability.”

– Blake

 

Works of Jacob Feldman are an unexplainable phenomenon

and therefore significant. His paintings are giving us this hint

of nearness of the mystery, which is in your soul. When you

are looking at the world around you through understanding

of that magic of unknown, through the incomprehensible,

the inconceivable, all ordinary and mundane objects are

transformed. They become extraterrestrial, participial to the

Eternity.

Able to conduct numerous painting techniques on the level

of virtuoso, Jacob synthesizes them in to his own unique

language.

Objects on his canvases and their metamorphoses in to the

sacred, mystical and enchanted, transforms viewers allowing

them to relate to this world in an entirely new way. Reality

becomes filled with hints and signs….

Visualizing concrete objects of one particular epoch, Jacob

rises above specifications and enters the level of global

generalization.

Anselm Kiefer, once said – “An artist is always painting an icon,

even if his subject is just broken pieces of a vase or a skeleton

of a fish…and therefore he is always a Creator…”

 Review of Jacob Feldman’s Exhibit

By Mark Fried

 

 

Jacob Feldman, in his paintings of landscapes, portraits and

inanimate nature, his captured the beauty, serenity and

mystery hidden in the depths of his creation and in the magic

of his paintbrush. Facing his works of art, Feldman approaches

his paintings through an inner attentiveness and sensitivity.

His paintings invite you to look longer, and meditate. When

the viewer accepts this invitation, he is about to embark on an

esthetic and spiritual experience
