    Hi all art lovers! I'm back to talk about FORM ... which is the 3rd element in the elements and principles of art and design. If you missed the previous 2 posts over the last couple of weeks I touched on LINE and SHAPE (pop back and have a read if you like). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    Unlike SHAPE which is flat and 2 dimensional (like a shadow) FORM is 3 dimensional, like the bird I drew above.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    SHAPE = FLAT
    FORM = Dimensional⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    Form takes up space and can give an artwork a sense of depth. Sphere’s, cube’s and pyramids have form and can be made to look like buildings, cars or any other object that has a place in the world, or the world of your imagination :) Sculptors would be particularly interested in form and how their 3-D objects exist in a space.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    Henry Moore was a famous English sculptor who created semi-abstract sculptures. They are beautiful organic forms that look different from each angle you view them from. He would have been very interested in how FORM interacts with space, other objects, and the viewer. Check out his pieces like ‘Large Reclining Figure’ and ‘Double Oval’.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    Also, keep your eyes peeled for any public art sculptures that may be close to where you live or on your daily commute. Stop and check it out the next time you pass by.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    XO Heidi
