Robert and Lisa Feldman’s contemporary art collection is one of the most significant privately held collections in Central Florida. The Winter Park couple’s collection encompasses a wide range of formats, including installation and films, but very early in his collecting career, Robert Feldman focused on buying limited-edition fine art prints. He has since amassed prints by revered artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns, and younger ones including Orly Genger, Nicola López and Zachary Wollard. Some of these were shown at UCF’s Fresh From Chelsea exhibit at the beginning of 2010. (See our review, “Bright young things,” Jan. 27, 2010.)

Feldman’s philosophy, articulated in the catalog for Fresh From Chelsea: “Do not underestimate the importance of collectors to the life of an artist.”

The organizers of Impressions Orlando hope to inspire a new generation of art buyers who will support the emerging crop of up-and-coming artists. Some of the names to watch: Nathan Redwood, whose woodcut prints blend the pastoral with emblems of technology; Russell DeYoung, a sculptor trying out multiple-edition sculptures with the help of Flying Horse interns; Josephine Halvorson, a painter whose work renders conspicuous the unseen or unconsidered details of daily life.

“Without the ability to sell or otherwise fund their work,” Feldman says, “there would be no artists or art.”
