#174 In the studio: Composition and design con't . . .

In sculpture the subject represented is the positive shape.
The empty space around the subject is the negative shape.

The viewer usually does not think about or consider the space around
the sculpture.  The sculptor, however, is constantly aware of both
positive and negative shapes as they are a device for designing and
organizing the sculpture.

                  Sculpture is the study of a thousand silhouettes.
