THURS. 2/2 IDEAL SOLIDS: Creating Spatial Depth

Nemea Laessig
Thursday night began with a slide lecture on "distal ques"; see previous post for more info. Nemea's drawing above exhibits a moderately deep sense of space with a bottom left to upper right movement (cube to cone). It's as if the objects are lined up in diagonal rows. Note how the repetition of forms pulls the "eye" around the composition: remember the "eye" is looking for similarity in form, shape, value and texture. Regarding texture notice that the ground appears to be a different material than the objects.  In addition, all the objects illustrate a strong sense of the "categories of light."
