The works of artist Nathan Feldman are exercises in practiced unconscious response, making physical his sensory experiences and lingering memories. Usually beginning with mark making, these pieces evolve over extended periods of time to embody a feeling or an experience that has had particular impact on the artist’s psyche. Of Space for Two in particular, the artist states that, “I love this painting, because it reminds me of moments of ephemeral stillness that helped me get through some pretty difficult times.”
