Trompe L’oeil Installations by Felice Varini

Trompe L’oeil Installation by Felice Varini

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.
