While painting allows artists to capture a moment in time, the strategic and captivating medium of movement in the art will enable artists to depict an alluring sense of motion within their two-dimensional artworks. In addition, by communicating movement within art, artists can add an exciting and provoking overall compositional interest to a painting. Some of today's artists, like Dorit Levinstein, Jonty Hurwitz and Calman Shemi, a few of Eden Gallery's exclusive artists, exemplify this power of movement in art by constantly and effectively transforming the static image into something dynamic and alive.
Movement in art refers to the path the eye takes through the artwork to make the image appear in motion, often creating a sense of action or emphasis on a particular focal point. For centuries, artists have used this principle to create visually and physically eye-catching art. Movement in art can be accomplished by using elements like color, shape, form, and space to create visual effects that inform the artwork's meaning. Through providing energy and vibrancy to any form of art, movement in art is an essential part of any composition, giving the artwork character and emotion.
While inviting her audience into her universe of forms, figures, and colors, Dorit Levinstein illustrates virtuosic lines, vivid colors, and rhythmic patterns within her art to bring her work to life. Levinstein's colorful sculptures depicting humans, animals, plants, and everyday objects look as if they are dancing whimsically through space. Levinstein's innovative approach and the free-floating nature of her sculptures fill her work with depth and meaning at each glance.
Along with Dorit Levinstein, the mind-blowing anamorphic artist Jonty Hurwitz dedicates his works to quite literally creating movement through art via an interactive experience. When placed in a common space, an anamorphic sculpture is a fascinating and visually stimulating artwork, drawing in the eyes of spectators who have never seen a similar sculptural illusion before, and are made to figure out the artwork by engaging with it.
Comparing his art to poetry, Calman Shemi has developed a medium of "soft painting" that speaks to the relationship between the individual and the natural environment. The artist's original "soft painting" technique offers his audience an alleviating visual experience distinctive from anything spectators have ever seen before. His works often follow continuous paint strokes in the same direction, creating an aesthetically thrilling movement flow.
