Illusive Structures: Paintings by Trygve Faste
Multi-dimentional paintings on 3D canvas using a variety of processes and tools including traditional painting techniques, airbrushing, laser wood cutting, and computer aided design (CAD) to create his one-of-a-kind, hand painted structures.
I have been calling them protoforms. It is a word that I made up and is based on the ideas of a prototype. Proto’ being something early or primitive that is still in the process of evolving and ‘form’ because the paintings are slightly dimensional. I called the pieces that have windows cut through the canvas protostructures because they reveal more of the underlying structure. Those pieces are really more about the idea of construction and how it relates to painting on canvas.The paintings are on view at One Grand Gallery.
