JANUARY 2017: Vance Feldman - ForeverScape

2018

ForeverScape, a mixed media drawing under construction since 2009 and measuring more than three football fields long, receives its first major Portland gallery showing at Blackfish in January. It’s creator, Vance Feldman, began this immense work eight years ago on a single sheet of 8 ½ x ll-inch card stock. Since then, the work has grown at a rate of a page every three days to over 1,000 pages, with imagery that connects seamlessly in a bodacious riot of imaginative narrative and sly social commentary.

Feldman, has devised a taco-shaped substrate in order to present the largest section of ForeverScape ever exhibited. The drawing, displayed in a grid form, hugs the length of the gallery ceiling and curves down to extend an equal distance on the floor. On view alongside the drawing is a “paper winding machine” Feldman invented to scroll through a facsimile of ForeverScape.
