Perspective: In Depth
July 6 – August 31, 2017
Perspective in art is a technique in which an artist represents a 3D object on a 2D surface. It creates a depth within the image, similar to an optical illusion, where the picture extends beyond the flat surface. Depth in a piece can be achieved by vanishing points and the utilization of color.
Although every human being has the ability to visually witness perspective in the physical world, it is a skill that must be learned and mastered to fully have the same effect. Each artist approaches their own vision of perspective, whether it's conveyed realistically, schematically, or symbolically resulting in a variety of interpretations.
