Fares Thabet's paintings capture landscapes of great complexity and paradoxical serenity. He explores perception and perspective to reveal compositions that introduce scenes of his strolls or of his imaginary pictorial universe. Strongly inﬂuenced by the Mediterranean landscape, he handles colour, seeking its vibration and luminous intensity by experimenting with various painting techniques. His approach is centred on colour and light as both a medium and language to depict his landscapes.
