swiss artist felice varini, known for his site specific geometric paintings, has conceived one of his most recent works entitled 'nine dancing triangles'.
the piece depicts a collection of bold red shapes, very characteristic of varini's work, pirouette across the barrels below.
this appears from one angle as a two-dimensional, cohesive painting, however, when shifting perspective the audience sees a jumble of brightly
colored lines and forms that seemingly to have no relationship to one another. the artwork was created on location at chateau
chasse-spleen, moulis en medoc in france.
the triangles are painted in a particular way so that they can only be seen cohesively from a certain angle
when viewed from a slightly different angle the image is completely distorted
the shapes look random an unorganized from this view
