2013 illusions of space

  1. 1. Illusions of space (Western art) • Aerial perspective - Colour is duller further away - Colour & tone have less contrast in the distance - Cooler colours recede; warmer colours advance - Details are vague – less defined / out of focus – further away Illusions of space (Western art) • Overlap sets up ‘front’ and ‘back’ • Size/scale – bigger in front • Position – close to the bottom of the format seems to be in front • Linear perspective - diagonals seem to converge to vanishing points on an imaginary horizon Research the meanings of these terms and find examples. Construct an A3 ‘infographic’ poster.
