Andrew Faris landscape painting color block

At first glance, these images by Andrew Faris look like they’ve been created digitally. However, upon closer inspection you’ll see that they’re actually acrylic on canvas. By setting up the abstract art in front of breathtaking landscapes, Faris juxtaposes surrealism with nature.

Juxtaposed against cool panoramas surrounding his home in wyoming, Faris’ paintings seem like portals to a digital world. recalling the geometric abstraction of frank stella, the bold, colorful pieces sharply contrast their serene and snowy settings, tricking the eye into thinking they’re virtually fabricated. while some pieces are carefully aligned to the landscape’s horizon line — continuing the optical illusion — others are posited on rock faces and sited in shallow creeks.

Less is more, urges the artist. ‘my thinking is this: in an increasingly complex and competitive society sternly ruled by technology and stainless robotic hands, there is impassioned need for artistic respite. simplicity, it has been said, is the essence of beauty. I couldn’t agree more.
