SLATE Contemporary, Exhibition – A Passing Storm: Roni Feldman

May 6 - June 25

SLATE Contemporary Gallery is pleased to present ‘A Passing Storm’, a solo show of contemporary paintings by Roni Feldman.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 5, 6–8pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, June 10, 4pm

Roni Feldman views art is an act of contemplative discovery. His paintings invite viewers to spend time with them, to move about, look closely, and become active visual explorers.

His cloudscapes are made entirely with white paint over a silver ground. They appear subtle at first, but come alive with light as it interacts with the varying matte and reflective surfaces. As one moves in front of them, or sunlight changes the lighting in the room, the paintings vacillate between abstraction and representation, revealing scenes of liquid transformation: great waves, stormy clouds, avalanches, and billowing geysers. The paintings are grand and often full of movement and energy, but the luminescence and soft forms balance drama with serenity.

Roni Feldman is fascinated by the history of white-on-white paintings and how white light is made from all the colors of the spectrum. It is everything and nothing all at once. To see them in their entirety takes time. Day or night, these paintings always have something to be discovered. In raking sunlight they can feel bright and shimmering and at night they may take on a warm glow from incandescent lights. Their mood is always changing, inviting reinvestigation, discovery, and comfort with change.
