Space expression in paintings: its meanings and grounds
The aim of this paper is to clarify the meanings of the term "space expression" in paintings. It has two meanings; the one is the representation of three-dimensional objects in paintings that have only two dimensions; the other is the expression of space as it is in paintings. Space expression in paintings has its grounds in the psychological mechanisms of space cognition. The ultimate basis of space expression in paintings is the existence and development of cognitive space in human cognitive processes.
