Negative Spaces

September 30, 2017

“Negative space, in art, is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, not the subject itself, forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and such space occasionally is used to artistic effect as the “real” subject of an image.”

Negative spaces can have a positive impact on the overall visual.

Some examples that have employed these to create an aesthetic feature:
