Fred Feldmesser is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. His work explores materials as much as concepts, becoming more meaningful together. Feldmesser removes familiar icons from their normal contexts by combining and isolating them in order to frustrate the viewer’s expectations and help her/him to see. Steel, broken glass, barbed wire, wax, flags, maps, toys, damaged frames, candles, metal letters and rusted nails comprise some of the materials that he uses to create confrontational, uncomfortable, and whimsical images that encourage vigilance and questioning.
