Divided by Night by Shane Turner Art

The Divided By Night series takes a similar approach to the Psychameleon series, in a slightly different, geometric direction. The fluidity of the dripping paint breaks up the parts of and shapes of the body in a random way, while Divided by Night uses linear stripes to create 3 dimensional negative space. Even though only the colour stripes contain shading and detailed information about the body, the entire image is visible to the viewer, because the brain fills in the black with optical information from the coloured areas.
