9 Hard-edge painting- style of art in which the artist uses crisp edges. No brushstrokes. Abstract Art- a style of art that shows objects in simplified arrangements of shape, line, texture, and color. Often geometric.

10 Op Art Elements & Principles 1.Balance: is it symmetrical or asymmetrical? 2.Pattern: “Multiplicity of Simplicity”…using the same simple pattern over and over and over… 3.Color: Not necessary, high contrast of black and white gives powerful result. 4.Assimilation: our tendency to minimize things and make them appear uniform. 5.Contrast: exaggerating differences. 6.Negative & Positive: negative surrounds positive, it is behind the figure. Positive is the figure.

11 7.Line- always gives us positive space. It is an abstract concept. 8.Multiple grouping- when we are confronted by several stimuli and how we organize it. 9.Good figure- the perceptual ability to predict the total entity from minimum information. 10.Proximity- objects that are near one another have a tendency to group. 11.Similarity- all similar things have a tendency to group.
