London-based artist Olly Fathers creates 3D paintings out of wood and acrylic to create intriguing, unusual landscapes, broken down to its core components. Inspired by the architecture and geometric forms that surround us, he creates abstracted landscapes, which examine our interactions with these forms.
Olly makes the shapes out of wood then combines acrylic paint mixed with other mediums to drip the paint, and let gravity do the rest. The paint moves around the shapes, in a similar way to how people move around architectural buildings. The paintings are also never “finished.” He then goes on to photograph the works at varying angles, like street views, and creates more prints and paintings. He will also occasionally create films of the dripping paint in action.
