The Shape and the Shapeless

I have a friend who works in the interior design industry in Orange County. While I was perusing her design blog I came across this interesting post. These paintings really seem to be good illustrations of the Shape of the Shapeless idea we've talked about in class. The blogger, Brittany, tries to explain what intrigues her about these paintings and is at a loss for words. I think the way things are left slightly unclear leaves us wanting more and wanting answers as to why it was done that way. Enjoy!!

nice example. once the "shape of the shapeless" gets into your mind, it helps make sense of a lot of things. i've been listening to a new jazz cd by charles lloyd and discovering those moments when he bends the sound away from the normal shape toward the shapeless.
