 Missing Forms  

• The form of a character/object is partially depicted with some parts remaining undone

Missing forms might simply imply that the artist could not or did not bother to finish the piece. Or the missing forms might be symbolic of missing aspects of the subject’s life. An artist can leave missing forms to create a sense of discomfort in a piece or to add an abstract element to an otherwise representational work.
