PLANE

UNIT 01: BASIC ELEMENTS OF PLASTIC EXPRESSION

3. PLANE

3.1. DEFINITION OF PLANE

It can be defined as a two dimensional surface, with width and length.
The plane can be represented by:

An outline

A coloured shape

A shape with texture

3.2. TYPES OF PLANES

3.2.1. REGULAR PLANES

They are the simplest kind of planes. A regular plane is formed by any regular polygon or simple shapes. They have all its angles and sides equal. They transmit a sensation of stability.

3.2.2. IRREGULAR PLANES

They create the sensation of instability or movement.

3.3. THE EXPRESSIVE POWER OF THE PLANE

Superimposing shapes: We can create sensation of proximity-remoteness.

If the shapes of a composition decrease in size, it creates a sensation of depth.

If we superimpose one shape over another, the effect of depth will be bigger.
