Suites de triangles

Felice Varini

From a viewpoint located on the roof of the panoramic terrace at the submarine base, Felice Varini draws a "horizontal line" which hugs the lanscape around the Saint Nazaire port.

The divisions of the shapes above and below this line split the landscape into different sequences. The artist reveals a shape painted on a single level, a shape that detaches from and places itself on top on the architecture to which til seems to belong. Leaving the viewpoint on the terrace now means experiencing the third dimension and seeing the explosion of the figure.
