Geometry in nature: paintings in wild spaces

Geometry in nature: paintings in wild spaces

Painter Andrew Faris works in acrylic on canvas. The geometric and boldly-colored paintings are often about 3-feet in size. When installed indoors, they would be a focal piece for one’s interior design, commanding the space with their flat and minimalist designs.

However, when the paintings are shown in in natural landscapes, the resulting photographs demonstrate a setting where the work does not dominate the surroundings. Instead, the paintings’ geometric shapes and bright colors become a man-made element within the softly modeled snow cover, brush, and mountain views. The paintings act as installations in nature.

The viewer is left with the question — is the artwork the painting, the installation, or the resulting photograph?
