American artist Andrew Faris uses acrylic paint on canvas to render minimalist, abstract artworks, then sets them within rural outdoor settings and photographs the outcome.
Juxtaposed against cool panoramas, 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.
