 Large Planes  

• The form of each object is broken down into large planes that abut one another

The shifts in color and/or value of the planes indicate the turning of form. The use of large planes generally requires significant simplification of the forms being depicted, and the artist must make choices concerning which aspects of the form will be emphasized. The shape of each plane can be unique, or the artist can choose to limit herself/himself to a particular shape or set of shapes that will be used for all of the planes. For instance, only triangular shapes might be used, or circular, or rectangular, etc.

Large planes can also be used in purely abstract works that create the illusion of a three-dimensional abstraction.
