We see positive as being the shape or presence of an object and negative as the spaces between objects. But there is another way to represent this.
By using the ultimate contrast between a shape that is there (positive) and one that is not (negative), we can create flat images that have the illusion of being real and three-dimensional.
This type of drawing has strong ties with silhouettes, but with a stronger feeling for solid shapes.
In these drawings I like to experiment with grey as well as black and white shapes.
