Beyond the edges

Viennese artist, Friedensreich Hundertwasser has created an interesting piece that extends beyond the boundaries...he often includes the color palette layout on the edges of the picture plane, these practical elements are balanced and included in the overall design...they act as a decorative element and tie in nicely with the overall decorative qualities of the piece...

The central image or face, is off center and balanced by the landscape on the right hand side...asymmetry forces the viewer to reconcile the picture plane and creates interest...Hundertwasser uses intense colors schemes in flat, horizontal layers...this combination adds to the decorative nature of his work. The house forms and landscape utilizes concentric lines to create texture and interest, used all over the picture plane to unify the piece.
