Adam “5100” Feibelman at Project 4



January 30 - March 6, 2010
Reception: Saturday, January 30, 2010 - 6:30-8:30 pm

Project 4 presents a solo exhibition of paintings by San Francisco based artist, Adam “5100” Feibelman. Drawing from historical influences in photography, printmaking and painting and combining them with the contemporary process of graffiti, Adam “5100” Feibelman creates photorealistic, monochromatic scenes reminiscent of the grit of industrial cities.

Using a photograph as a guide, Adam “5100” Feibelman disects the image into multiple meticulously hand-cut stencils. One by one, stencils are applied to a wood panel with spray paint in the manner of printmaking, a medium specific to the artist's background and personal studio practice. The object produced takes on the form of a painting and a genre most closely related to photorealism. The result is an image that refers back to the photographic image with the craft of the original image elevated to a new status resulting from a skillful, specifically hand-made process.
