IV. Degrees of Dimensionality

Alter Ego – A second self. Another side to oneself.

Abstract – visionary and unrealistic.

Non-representational – Not resembling or portraying any object in physical nature.

Anthropomorphic abstraction – project human qualities.

Geometric abstraction – simple geometric forms placed in nonillusionistic space and combined into nonobjective compositions.

Mask – covering for the face. Conceal identity.

Low relief – figures project slightly from background.

High relief – volumes are strongly projected from background.

In-the-round – The sculpture is not connected to its original background. Can be viewed from all angles.
