Positive/Negative Shapes

Positive/Negative shapes In a picture, the shapes that the artist has placed are considered positive shapes. The spaces around the shapes are negative spaces. It is just as important to consider the negative space in a picture as the positive shapes. Sometimes artists create pieces that have no distinction between positive and negative spaces. M. C. Escher was a master at creating drawings where there was no distinction between positive and negative space.
