This series began with one of the simplest and most versatile elements in any artist’s toolbox: line. Subsequent exhibits investigated shape, form, value, and color. Now, we examine space: the area around, between, and within the various components of an artwork. Whether the artist is sculpting three-dimensional space or deftly playing with the two-dimensional illusion of it, every form of visual art grapples with the concept of space.
