The abandonment of people and place is a central theme in David FeBland's intensely shimmering cityscapes. He takes the viewer with him to places where the painstakingly maintained façade crumbles and the vulnerability of the city's inhabitants becomes visible. Peppered with surprising details, his works often contain a subtext that only unfolds after prolonged contemplation.
