In the Estates series, Feldmeyer explores the reconstruction of small urban moments. Reminiscent of photographs at first sight, they are in fact detailed digital models made of geometric polygons, physically accurate light simulations and fog particles. Memories and daydreams of a many places are condensed in each composition - an ‘in-between’ world where places of reality and of dreams intertwine.
Alexander Caspari from Encounter Contemporary speaks of Feldmeyer's approach 'preoccupied with ‘the experience of places and spaces in dreams’ Feldmeyer painstakingly creates imagined landscapes that do not exist in the ‘real’ world. These places are not derived from photographs but are instead digitally constructed three dimensional models which occupy a new virtual space somewhere between drawing and architectural rendering.' .
The series echoes both landscape photography and miniature painting.
'I am fascinated by the process of reconstructing in great detail small everyday moments - the evening sun on a brick courtyard, or the trees at the end of the park, familiar scenes that seem to say something very clear to me, although I never know exactly what.’
