Forced Perspective


The meaning of perspective used in art involves creating an appearance of depth.

By introducing a sense of depth, we create space and an extension of reality into our art.

It is when things appear real that they become real to their senses to some degree.

Perspective pulls the audience in, letting them experience what may have only previously existed in your imagination.

Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is.
