Themes in Art


Perspective is a variety of artistic techniques used to reproduce the way three-dimensional spaces or objects appear to our eyes, in two dimensional artwork. Includes linear perspective, where parallel lines appear to converge as they move into the distance, and atmospheric perspective, where objects that are farther away are rendered as hazy or with less detail. Intentionally deviating or warping perpective is also a great way to destabilise an audience or conjure a surreal vibe.
