shapes - compare sizes

WHEN TWO OR MORE ITEMS ARE PLACED TOGETHER, WE IMMEDIATELY COMPARE THEM.

WE DECIDE WHICH IS LARGER THAN THE OTHER.

A PERSPECTIVE WILL SHOW AN ITEM SEEMING TO BECOME SMALLER IF IT IS FURTHER AWAY FROM YOU.

WE COMPARE THE HEIGHTS OF BUILDINGS WHEN VIEWING A CITY HORIZON.

WHEN WE COMPARE DIFFERENT OBJECTS WE LOOK FOR SOMETHING WE KNOW. ITS SIZE WILL DETERMINE HOW WE PERCIEVE THE OTHER ITEMS.

When you look at these paintings that Leonie has created (LoniART) you feel that "Grey" is the smallest. When you see them together in Leonies Gallery "Moth 2"  below - a different story emerges. 

When you see different items together, the eye compares each component, and subconsciously uses past experiences as clues to the size. In this image, you are looking at the paintings in Leonies gallery. The table, lamp and mirror to 'scale' everything in your mind, then you compare the sizes of the paintings.

Jeanenes Giant Gerbera painting is seen in context and the scale is known when a person is seen in the image. 

WHEN YOU SEE A PIECE IN CONTEXT THE SIZE BEOMES APPARENT
