Brian Fahlstrom conceives painting as a dynamic which falls outside of lived experience; his canvases become fields of implausible invention and adventure. Conveying an intuitive notion of place, Fahlstrom’s paintings present a dream-like longing to realise an elsewhere existing only in fantasy. Using painting as a means to physically explore imagination, Fahlstrom’s abstracted landscapes unfold as tactile topographies. Heavy brushwork and layers of paint resolve as striated contours and organic matter, giving earthy tangibility to his escapist illusion.
