HW2: Variety

Hi-Fructose Vol.44, August 2017, Pages 86-87. Artist: Mu Pan.

This image has an astounding amount of variety; its lines, forms, colours, and textures contrast and compete with one another. There is slight repetition found in many of its subjects (waves, scales on the Godzilla figure, the positioning of the dolphin army) but the variations found in these forms lend itself to the chaos that is being portrayed. I think this image is a strong example of effective communication through design, while also clearly supporting Gestalt's theory of how we look at, absorb, and examine artwork.
