David FeBland Painting

David FeBland was born in London, UK and has received degrees from The University of Virginia, USA and The University of Manchester, UK. A self-taught artist, FeBland pursued careers in Landscape Architecture and Communication Design as well as hosting jazz radio programs before turning his attention to painting in the mid-1980’s. Since 1984, he has bicycled through 55 countries around the world, often using his observations as inspiration for his painting.

FeBland’s work considers issues of privacy, conflict and isolation in contemporary urban life, employing a colorist’s eye and a strong sense of formal compositional structure. He describes the interaction between man and his physical universe through a series of invented truths, a sleight of the facts as it were, inspired by observations of everyday life throughout the world. His paintings, drawing upon experiences over a wide range of geographical locations, are driven by a conviction that certain behavioral responses to ones environment are universal.

Critics describe his paintings as such: “These images are disarmingly involving. His ability to instill strongly emotive elements into his work also hints at the more graphic work of Ben Shahn and Diego Rivera. It suggests an evolution of socially conscious realism that both Ashcan artists and Shahn flirted with, a very modern response to the Soviet socialist movement that embraces its more expressive elements…. {this is} a quality that gives the movies of Spike Lee their poignancy, and it’s a spirit that FeBland’s works achieve better than his contemporaries.”

An internationally recognized artist, FeBland shows extensively throughout Europe, the UK and the US, where he is represented by galleries in Los Angeles, New York, London, Frankfurt & Berlin. He has participated in over 70 solo and group shows and has been reviewed or featured in Art in America, The New York Times, American Artist Magazine, PBS Television, New American Paintings, The Spectator (UK), and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany). He is represented at many art fairs worldwide.

FeBland has held a number of academic posts, most recently as Adjunct Professor of Architectural Drawing at City University of New York. His work is held in many corporate collections including American Express, AT&T, Chase Bank, Citibank, IBM, Esprit, Exxon-Mobil, Wassall USA, Inc. and Roland-Berger, GMBH, and he is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of New York. His solo museum shows include The Museum of the Southwest (Texas) and the upcoming Kunstverein Weinheim (Germany). A documentary film of his work and methodology will be produced early in 2016 by The Artist’s Archive Productions.


THE UNSEEN HUMAN INTERACTIONS OF URBAN LIVING EXPOSED: AN INTERVIEW WITH DAVID FEBLAND

1. You are a self-taught painter. What initially made you want to become an artist?

That’s a rather difficult question to answer because unlike most traditional forms of work, the creation of art is instinctive, rather than a choice. The harder enterprise is to resist the urge to create in favor of other life choices. I’ve often said that ‘Art finds you, rather than the inverse’.

2. Is there any particular reason why you chose to use the traditional media of oil painting to depict such current subject matters ?

Oil Paint is the king’s medium. It is flexible, versatile, responsive & challenging to master. Beyond that, my work is driven by contemporary narrative ideas, and as such does not depend upon the newness of its medium to communicate with its audience.

” Oil Paint is the king’s medium. It is flexible, versatile, responsive & challenging to master.”

3. What are the major issues you want to highlight through your works ?

The major themes of my work deal with the interaction of individuals with the physical world. Isolation, human interaction, issues of privacy and conflict in dense environments, anxiety and its counterbalances are all themes that I return to throughout my work. The context for exploring these issues are often pictorial representations, mostly invented, that describe the common interactions of contemporary life that go un-noticed.

4. Which of your pieces do you think conveys those issues in the most striking way? Why ?

This, again, is a hard question to answer after 25 years of returning again and again to overarching themes. I always think that the current painting in front of me has the potential to be the piece best capable of expressing an important idea – summoning an accumulation of perception and craft and a refinement of concept. If this isn’t true, then why all the hard work? Why all the reductive effort? Having said that, there are always high-water moments of achievement in the life of a career, a point in time when the stars align, when, as in the words of Peter Gallagher’s character, the producer in The Player, ‘these film scripts write themselves’.

5. Who or what has been the biggest single influence in your way of thinking ?

I was a 6-year-old child growing up in the bucolic countryside of Southern England when suddenly my family relocated to Coney Island, Brooklyn. It was 1955, during the ebbing but still raucous era of sideshows and bawdy entertainments of the working class seaside town.

My new neighborhood was a lively place where Freak Shows were commonplace and the people who worked them for a living went about their local errands after hours. This seminal experience gestated for a long time before finding its way into art as I engaged in a variety other life pursuits, but it formed my view of public life forever. I never really took my eyes off the street again, and l believe that at that early age my interest in human interaction with our physical surroundings was set.

However unconsciously, my lifelong determination to cast the world around me as dramatic narrative was established. As a young student at architecture school, I began an academic study of crowded city environments, reading many of the urban and cultural theorists of the 1960’s and 70’s. I began to observe such life directly after moving to New York City in the late 1970’s. Art was always in my family. My mother was and is a professional fine artist, and at an early age I was exposed to contemporary painting and sculpture in the great museums. It became a natural fit, when the time came, to embrace picture making as a way of expressing my own view of the observable world.

6. You bicycled through 55 countries around the world. Can you tell us some of the most memorable observations you made which later inspired you ?

Over 35 years of traveling the globe, I have developed the conviction that despite great differences in cultures, many human interactions are universal in nature. Our desires to express love, our reaction to stress under extreme conditions are recognizable in very different environments. Additionally, the clash between Eastern and Western thinking remains consistent through time. Thirty-five years ago, while traveling in Morocco, I participated in an early-morning voyage into the dessert that crystalized this separation of cultures. A group of us, all Westerners, hired a jeep with a local driver to see the sun rise over the dunes. We were impatient to get there while the driver stopped well short of our destination, seemingly for no reason. 29 years later, while flying to London on an Arabic-owned airline, during a mid-flight call to prayer where all men kneeled facing a symbolic red dot on the ceiling of the fuselage, I recalled this earlier experience and soon after created the painting, Ka’aba, a re-creation of that long-passed moment.

” I have developed the conviction that despite great differences in cultures, many human interactions are universal in nature. Our desires to express love, our reaction to stress under extreme conditions are recognizable in very different environments. “

7. What are you currently fascinated by and how does it feed into your work ?

Lately, I am experiencing in a mental departure from the physical world l occupy. I have migrated from the crowded, cacophonous city in which I find myself. As a result, the paintings I’m producing right now are more spacious, filled with more light and air; encompass a vastness unavailable in New York City. Themes of isolation have been transported to the world beyond.

8. What is the key to success these days for any artist hoping to make a name in the Art World ?

As a practical matter, this is unanswerable. So much of the art world is irrational in nature. Serendipity & chance play a substantial role in raising an artist’s profile. There are, however, a few things an artist should do to place one’s self in the path of good luck: circulate, both literally and digitally. There is no chance for success if no one knows you exist. Do not follow trends. Dig deeply and find the themes that are crucially important to you. If your work isn’t an honest reflection of who you are as a human being, you are wasting your time. Better to go into law or politics where inauthenticity will not serve as an obstacle to fame or material success.

” Do not follow trends. Dig deeply and find the themes that are crucially important to you. If your work isn’t an honest reflection of who you are as a human being, you are wasting your time. “

David FeBland draws continual inspiration from his New York

City surroundings, what he calls, “the anxiety of my urban life.” His energetic paintings are based on his observations of people
interacting with the urban environment. FeBland depicts the beauty of the city, in playful paintings such as Devil May Care,
as well as its harsher side, such as in the snowy Year of Living Dangerously. For the artist, depicting darker scenes in a manner
that is light and beautiful is “a willfull act of seducing the viewer to stay with [him] in the picture.”

While informed by scenes he witnesses on a daily basis, FeBland’s paintings are not directly observed. He often adds or changes elements based on his memory to imbue his work with drama and narrative. The artist states, “My paintings reflect the insights and doubts many of us share but often can’t find the language to express. I’m luckier than most because over time I’ve developed the voice to articulate these ideas. In fact, I’d say that my paintings are all about the small idea. If my work is successful, if it has significance, then each painting represents a building block which, when seen over the life of a career, serves a greater purpose, a larger idea that is expressed in the fullness of time.”

David FeBland was born in London, England and has received professional degrees from The University of Virginia and The University of Manchester, UK. He has participated in over 70 solo and group shows since 1995 and has been reviewed or featured in Art in America, The New York Times, American Artist Magazine, PBS Television, New American Paintings, The Spectator (UK), and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany), amongst others. FeBland has served as a juror for numerous national invitational exhibitions and has held a number of academic posts, most recently as Associate Professor of Architectural Drawing at City University of New York. This is his first solo exhibition at the George Billis Gallery.
