Protoform: Abstract Paintings by Trygve Faste

American artist Trygve Faste draws upon his background in Mathematics and Computer Science to create amazing 3-dimensional paintings that look like something out of a sci-fi movie.

“In Faste’s own words, his production is inspired by a fascination with human-manufactured reality, both spatial and physical. The ‘invention of our surroundings,’ he explains on his website, ‘has resulted in a complex environment of objects ranging widely in their purpose from pragmatically functional to completely whimsical.’ His paintings, accordingly, embody this tension between apparent use-value and formal appeal, and they appear to hover between depth and flatness.”
