Shapes and Psyche 

This gallery explores the use of shapes and lines as forms of artistic expression.

This painting by Francois Morellet uses lines that traverse the frame of one piece onto another. The lines are overlapped by the shapes which conveys the sense of multiple layers.
This post-was painting is an example of abstract expressionism. It depicts three narrow, red rectangles on an orange background with concentric green outlines. Much like in the principle of the vanishing point, depth is emphasized.
A plethora of seemingly random shapes. The title is "House Under Construction" which hints at the direction of the artist's expressionism. It is evident from the angles between adjacent shapes that precise calculations were used to augment the relationships between the different colored rectangles.
This piece utilizes cross sections of cubs in a grid manner. Each of the cubes has one face that is a rhombus.There are 4 primary colors and each section is connected to a similarly colored section at it's corner. All the cut faces have the same color and texture further contributing to the emphasis of edges and shapes.
Here we can see multiple lines that fade away from blue to then almost beige background. The artist's use of strong brushstrokes to paint each line is clearly visible. As they fade, they can be seen giving ride to thinner lines. This is probably some form of expressionism through lines and symmetry.
This artist's techniques involve recycling everyday objects to create a unique sculpture. On prolonged inspection, it appears that each section of the sculpture was treated like a different work altogether. Objects such as rulers, wooden planks, bottles can be seen in this monochromatic sculpture.
This painting utilizes color over lines to create a sense of movement. At the top, it looks like a grey line with red strikes on it, and as we go lower, the line gets wider and eventually appears to be a red line with grey strikes. Perspective matters whilst viewing this painting.
This painting uses squares offset at a forty five degree angle, places equidistant from each other. It is a form of minimalism , and in this picture one can infer that the large square is being accentuated by the symmetric smaller ones below it.
This pieces uses the familiar five intersecting rings from the Olympics. The artist is clear in using symmetry in this creation. The circles intersect each other in proportions of the golden ratio. He uses red, green, and blue to denote areas in which more than two circles share space.
This painting can be interpreted as vertical and horizontal bars, almost like bricks, inferring that this is a wall. The paint is seen changing texture within each rectangle giving it a rougher texture and also a fair amount of luminosity.
