Get Some Perspective!

We live in a three-dimensional world where the two-dimensional are constantly rendered to appear as 3D. It’s such a familiar concept to the contemporary viewer that it’s easy to forget there was a time when the concept of perspective was still very new.  Of course, “perspective” has always existed, and the ancient Greeks had a grasp on it.  However, really understanding it, and modelling it, was left to the 15th Century Italian architect and engineer Filippo Brunelleschi who demonstrated a mathematical approach that proved how forms and space shrink in size according to their location and distance from the eye.

In 1435 Leon Battista Alberti discovered the first theory of linear perspective and published his treatise Della Pictura (On Painting) in which he too relied on mathematics as the common ground of art and science.

These two key players had an enormous impact on European artists and their methods are still used by artists, designers and architects today.

In this exhibition we showcase works by artists who apply their own “viewpoint” to the wonderful world of “perspective”.
