Jackie's shape gallery

This gallery focuses mainly on shapes. Shapes can be positive or negative, abstract or representative, and so much more!

This is a Non-objective shape because there are rectangles and straight figures but there is no specific reference to reality. You cannot directly identify what the objects are in the painting and that is why they are non-objective. For example, there is a red figure toward the bottom and it is rectangular and curved at the top, not really specific in real figures.
This piece of art represents organic shapes which are natural objects that you would observe every day in the world. In this work, I see mountains in the background and their shape is really crisp. Also, toward the bottom of the picture, there are rocks in a pond and the rocks are easily identifiable and are round/smooth.
This is positive shape, or figure because the shapes are distinguished from the background. In this case, the yellow can be identified as the negative ground and the black and red shapes can be the positive shapes because there is a high contrast between them.
Abstract shapes come from visual reality but they can be twisted and transformed into one creative art piece. Like this artwork, for example, has different shapes, edges, and colors. You can identify them but the shapes blend into each other and there is really no exact direction.
Representational shapes display specific subjects and are based on direct observations. In this painting, it is obvious that there is a house, trees, a sky, and clouds. These shapes are easily identifiable.
High definition makes a strong distinction between the shapes and adds clarity due to the bright shapes. In this piece, there are many different colored shapes and they differ amongst each other mainly because they are in high definition.
Low definition is when the shapes are not really defined and they are blurred. Like in this artwork, there are dark integrated lines.
Rectilinear shapes consist of straight and crisp edges/lines. In this artwork, the man's body is divided in a way where you can identify the shapes and many of them are rectangular like the man's arms and shoulders. Also, the background is made up of straight rectangular shapes.
Geometric shapes are shapes that can be measured mathematically and have crisp edges. In this piece of art, there are three large rectangular walls and they seem evenly shaped. They have clear edges and their volumes can be calculated through math.
Curvilinear shapes represent curves and flowing edges. There are lots of different curved and twisted shapes in this piece of art like the yellow figures and the white shapes. Mostly all of them are curvilinear and are easily identifiable.
There are positive/negative shapes and organic shapes in this piece of art. The tree is the positive shape because it is popping out and it is the direct object. The negative shape would be the white background because it is not the focus. The tree would also be an organic shape because it is part of nature.
This artwork consists of both abstract shapes and curvilinear shapes. Although you might be able to make out the clouds and trees, they are deformed and transformed into blended shapes. This makes it abstract looking. Also, there are curvilinear shapes like the cloud, trees, and roots.
There are positive/negative shapes and organic shapes in this artwork. The flowers and food are the positive shapes because it is the main focus of the painting and it draws our attention. The dark background would be the negative shape because it is supporting the positive shapes. The organic shapes are the flowers and the food in the basket because they are natural items.
