What would you say if I told you, that every day, 365 days of the year, your brain is playing tricks on you? You would laugh in my face – right??? And yet, it’s a fact.
We humans are 3-D forms moving about in a 3-D world – a world whose objects have height, width, and depth. However, our eyes can only see 2-D forms. This is where the brain comes in. It tricks the eye into seeing depth. The 3-D show at Coast Collective runs from August 21st to September 1st and will undoubtedly run the gamut from jewellery to pottery, woodwork to metal work – anything that one can pick up, touch, move around, falls into the 3-D category. BUT some of our artists are so brilliant that they can present a 3-D object – a cube, a prism, a pyramid – by means of their 2-D art. Plan to give your brain a workout and attend the Meet-the-Artists reception on Friday, August 23rd from 7 to 9 pm.
