Art is a conjuror, or beguiler. Nowhere is this truer than in painters’ and sculptors’ attempts at convincing the viewer that their people, animals, clouds, vehicles are in motion.
They are not; they are for ever bonded to their picture planes or solid support. Yet countless generations have accepted angels flying in the sky, figures rising from a tomb or walking through a poppy field. The illusion of movement in art has been achieved in many different ways.
An unstable position implies change — at any moment a follow-up must occur. Of course it does not. It is the onlooker who provides the next stage, and the one before, from his/her own experience. The co-operation of the viewer is vital for the deception to work, and work it does.
