Skillful use of perspective (or omitting perspective altogether) is a critical component in many great works of art. Some examples:

  • Linear – lines of buildings, roads, etc. appear to come together (converge) at a single point on the horizon.
  • Atmospheric – the artist uses color changes to show what is near to the viewer (darker colors) and what is far away (lighter colors).
  • Visual – the artist uses the size of the object to show what is near and what is far away or overlaps people or objects, showing what is in front and what is behind.
  • No Perspective – there is no sense of depth; everything looks flat, as in most Medieval and many modern and contemporary images.

All artists must complete online entry application.

RJT (Toby) Haynes' Artist Statement:

"I've always loved the alchemy of line & colour, hunting for the spark that makes all the difference to an image. I am not in control of the process, nor would I want to be; it is the journey that is interesting, and discoveries made along the way. I will change my technique or the colours on my palette if it starts to feel too familiar: the materials & subject have a say in what becomes of them, and painting is always a form of dialogue between us."

"I would be a poor taxonomist because I am naturally wired to see similarities & connections rather than differences & distinctions: something as deceptively simple as an apple makes me think of the tree, the blossom, the pollinating insect, the harvest, recipe books, religious & erotic symbolism. I am not so much interested in fleeting impressions as in their lasting effects, the memory of them, the mycelial web of associations they send out; but a painting must ultimately have a life of its own, to find its way without exegesis."





Programs of the East End Arts Gallery are made possible with public funding provided by the New York State Council of the Arts, Suffolk County, County Executive Steve Bellone, and the Town of Riverhead.
