ART for the Imagination



Feldsott pushes the fundamentals of painting in ways that are clearly his own. His work is medicine. Crushed Alabaster, human and plant material, handmade paints, metallic substances and other medicinal elements mixed by Feldsott as part pharmacist/painter/shaman are used to awaken original memories of the viewer.


Feldsott’s paintings are brilliantly seductive dialogues filled with mystery, shared collective memory and archetypes. Bold shapes, dazzling colors and lines of heroic energy transport the viewer deeper into the spiritual realms of places and beings.
