Sage Feldman

I like to believe, my art speaks for itself. I strive to make paintings and sculptures worth a thousand words. My art and my artistic approach is to provoke as well as give potential answers to difficult questions. I believe the balance between questioning and answering,  has always been the role of the artist. 

As my economic resources wane, I am both personally repulsed but intrigued by our nation’s  allocation of financial resources. The politics are just one potential source of artistic exploration. However, I am more curious about my visceral and less politically correct responses.  I am ready to examine and push boundaries; self-made boundaries. I want to examine fair versus reality and actuality. I am looking for space where I can continue to develop and grow as an artist. Working on my art, I am excited and motivated.  This energy feels endless. It is not an energy fueled by some trendy sound bite. Last year,  I faced the gritty reality of homelessness. I found blame was easy, but not healing. By pushing my comfort levels and norms, I am able to envision change and explore some of the suppressed emotions.

I have a connected spiritual home. I call it the natural world, it guides when I listen. This has always informed my art. I'm drawn to, protected by,  and inspired by nature. This faith manifests as my spirituality. Therein lies the paradox. The paradox between current economic human traits and my need and love of the natural world. This struggle has led me on my artistic path. In an attempt to renovate, restore, inspire, and create,  I can envision the functionality of art and form. The interweaving of spirituality and the physical realities are informing my art . The occurrence of natural and industrial embody my art, and fuel my personal art revolution.

Recently, I began oil painting on 3Dimensional canvas, such as oil drums, propane tanks, and fire extinguishers, and have not looked back. The aftermath of hurricane Irene was horrific and life altering. There were displaced homes, jobs, families, and art studios. Since that time I have been on a journey for a new artistic home to call my art studio.

I am examining my boundaries. I want to examine fair versus reality and actuality. Working on my art, I am excited and motivated.  This energy feels endless. It is not an energy fueled by some trendy sound byte. Last year,  I dealt with the gritty reality of homelessness. I found blame was easy, but not healing. By pushing my comfort levels and norms, I am able to envision change and explore some suppressed emotions. As my economic resources wane,  I became intrigued by our nation’s  allocation of financial resources. The politics are just one potential source of artistic exploration. However, I am more curious about my visceral and less politically correct responses. The search for good boundaries and placement is ongoing.

My New artwork I call Strapping Flower Sculptures.Strapping flower sculpture begin as an attempt to get organized and work to resolve my difficult emotion of anger that stemmed from being homeless. A culmination of the impact I felt after the clearing away fear, has left me with strapping flower sculpture.
