Bella Feldman makes extraordinary objects - objects that rivet your attention by their physical appearance; the weight, mass, volume, material, posture, balance, and motion immediately access a bodily response. Then your mind, your sense of poetry, human imagination, and memory tune in and hold you there. Bella's works are intended to keep and enlarge their meaning over time; their layered imageries shift and evolve with the viewer's own moods and experiences. The materials for her sculptures are chosen not only for structural reasons but also for the references they embody.
