Art’s subjective nature grants it power, and Felice Varini’s unique perspective packs his work with a major punch. The Swiss artist who swapped the Alps for the Eiffel Tower has dedicated the last thirty years to inventing impressive illusions that challenge our perception of the space around us.
Moving beyond the simplicity of two dimensional shapes, Varini’s canvases are a little out of the ordinary, as he turns entire buildings into works of abstract architectural art. What initially seems to be a series of bizarre, mind bending shapes and misplaced lines quickly transforms into geometric works of wonder when viewed at precisely the right point. Standing one millimeter off from Varini’s particular point of view, however, could mean the difference between witnessing the sweeping monochrome marvels and missing the big picture completely.
