Felice Varini’s Installations are Playful With Perspective

by Danny OldaPosted on

You could say Paris based artist Felice Varini uses perspective in a way opposite to how we’re typically accustomed to seeing it in art: he transforms three dimensions into two.  His large site specific installations are often simply geometric shapes in bright single colors.  From a very specific vantage point, however, the shape appears to be two dimensional and floating in the air.  Varini’s installations nearly resemble a pattern merely printed on a photograph of the scene.  Look more closely though – you’ll notice Varini carefully applied these shapes over wide areas of walls, floors, doors, and windows.  Step to the side and the shapes suddenly become violently skewed.
