Paris-based Felice Varini, originally from Locarno, Switzerland, considers himself a painter, not an installation artist, but his work is deeply rooted in the exploration of vantage points within 3-dimensional space.
Varini paints primarily on architectural spaces such as buildings and walls. Each work has a single vantage point in which a precise geometric shape appears. It’s so crisp that it looks Photoshopped. From all other vantage points, the painting offers up shifting fragments of a vivid shape. According to the artist, all of these perspectives are “correct.”
Varani states, “The reality exists with its own qualities, shapes, colours and light conditions. What I do is simply add another shape and colour in response to that.” For more insight into the artist’s thought process, check out this illuminating interview. For more examples of work, see his site.
