Chapter 7: Space • Shallow Space • Allover Space • Deep Space
Shallow Space • Significantly limits the depth of space between the front and back planes portrayed by an image or object • Opposite of Deep space Emperor Justinian and Courtiers, wall mosaic, San Vitale, Ravenna
Allover Space • A form of shallow space where the differentiation between foreground/middle ground/background areas is negligible or even non-existent. Jackson Pollocks, Number One, 1948
Deep Space • The distance between the front and back planes, or spatial areas, is great. Panoramic landscape scenes fall into this category. Charles Foster Kane as aged magnate,” still from the film Citizen Kane, 1941.

Shallow Space • Background is limited • Focus is on the person in the drawing • Limited depth of space between the back and front planes
Allover Space • Invisibility • Textures merge with each other • Physical and emotional performance of the artist himself • This is in opposition to traditional composition in which there is a center of interest.
Deep Space • Great spatial area • Scenes fall into this category • Panoramic View • The space represents the calmness of the drawing • The distance between the back and front planes are great
