The Different Meanings of Shape

This gallery is composed of pieces of art that consist of different shape, definition, and degrees of representation to give a better understanding of the art element, shape.

In a way, the piece shows positive shape from the large object because it sticks out from everything else. Negative space in this piece would be the night sky because it helps the tower stick out.
This piece has rectilinear shapes because the shapes are made up of straight lines and and angular corners
This piece consists of nonobjective shapes in this painting consist of the enormous triangles, the grids within the triangles, and the smaller triangles since they are in pure forms.
The piece is a good example of curvilinear shapes because of the wavy texture in the shape, the illusion-like figures, and the mint-looking figures.
This piece consists of high definition because there is a border separating each distinct color from each other.
The painting shows low definition from the colors of the mountain, clouds, and ground come together giving the setting a foggy or hazy look to it.
This piece uses organic shapes such as the sky, sand, and grasslands since they are not normal shapes like triangles, rectangles, and squares.
The painting shows many abstract shapes because the shapes resemble a violin from the pegs, bow,and the scroll even though they are separated from each other.
This next piece shows representational observation from the simplicity of the hare and the fact that there are only two objects, the hare and the ground.
One can tell that this piece is put together with geometric shapes since they use precise edges, straight lines, and consistent curves.
