Spatial Colour Effects Across Three-dimensional Form: The Tilt Effect
International Colour Association (AIC)
MetadataShow full item record
This doctoral research examines and analyses the spatial activity created by colour combinations, drawn from landscape, when applied to three-dimensional form. Colours perform spatially upon a two-dimensional surface in a multitude of ways and these may be affected significantly by other formal properties of three-dimensional works. My research has revealed that bands of colour arranged upon the three-dimensional bowl, display spatial manoeuvres that are not found within identical alignments of hues upon a two-dimensional surface. A key finding to date is the 'tilt effect', an illusion that bends form. This phenomenon is so resolute and compelling, that not only can a dual tilt appear, but further unexpected spatial events can also occur. Such effects, once determined, may be used as an abstract language across the mediums of painting and ceramics to return to and realise an abstracted representation of landscape.
