FRED FELDMESSER ARTIST STATEMENT
I love things all kinds of things objects old and new that somehow for no apparent reason tell me a story their story. Give them new homes, and strange bed partners as someone once said opposites attract. The greater sum theory and all that. My art is about Gravitas a most fantastic word. For the most part my work is heavy the actual weight.The story being told. Some of the stories have happy endings most do not. I like this fact very much. It happens by itself by accident but not really. Do not be afraid to touch the art. You may even change it a bit. Move it around. Be careful though you may hurt yourself. I bleed all the time. The pain and suffering are inexplicably there. No pain no gain. I like the mix.
