Studio Visit: Nathan Feldman

Geelong/Djilang-based artist Nathan Feldman has been a practicing artist for the past 30 years. He has a Bachelor of Fine Art from Monash University and studied at The Geelong Fine Art School. Feldman paints snapshots of his memory. urban and natural landscapes merge together with a sense of nostalgia and melancholy. Themes of love, loss, grief, suffering and joy are explored where the natural world serves as metaphor.

“My studio sits at the rear of my house. I don’t have any interruptions and it’s where I spend most of my time – I like the solitude. I like that I can listen to music and enjoy the ephemeral state that occasionally happens. I can lose hours at a time without realising.”
