Artist J. Robert Feld has gone very far in making a point about people that rush through museums. Therefore, he created paintings that are to be viewed using a smartphone. The title of this show is “Mondrian Inverted: The Viewer is not Present”. Feld took Mondrian’s work inverted the color scheme. To see what the painting really looks like you need to see it through the function of an iPhone or Android.
The artist stated that the paintings are not his actual work, “The act of looking through the phone and seeing the painting appear more real and recognizable on the screen than on the wall in front of you is the concept of the series,” he said.
I think this proposal is creative, but for my taste I am more of traditionalist and when I see a painting I would like the artist reflect his inner world of emotions. This art show was not about the artist, but about the viewer and a way of criticizing their technology obsession. Next time give me something I can cry or rejoice about.
