The Power of Positive and Negative Shapes

We’ve all seen the image of the Yin Yang.  Yin The Yin and Yang can be thought of as complementary or opposing forces that interact and reinforce to form a dynamic relationship in which the whole is greater than the parts. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, (for instance shadow cannot exist without light, good without evil). One does not exist without the other.

The students have been working with this principle as it applies to art.  They selected images of desired objects.  These were repeatedly reproduced with close attention the space between.  The images were represented in a range of media and techniques, again, being responsive to the force between the positive the negative.
