A student exhibition exploring various ways in which artists interpret the concept of Gestalt.

Gestalt is a psychology term meaning, “an organized whole that is perceived as more than the sum of its parts.” This term was developed in the 1920s by German psychologists when studying the theory of visual perception. There are five elements involved in this theory: similarity, continuation, closure, proximity and figure ground. These elements help further understand how people organize visually into groups or, “an organized whole.”
This exhibition is an exploration of the various ways in which these artists interpret and realize their understanding of the concept of Gestalt. This show includes many different mediums such as; painting, ceramics, jewelry, digital print and mixed media.

You are welcome to come and explore the different interpretations of Gestalt presented by the Art students of NEIU.
