Family of Birds by Octavio Ocampo

Ambiguous 10 March 2016 0 Comments

This painting from Mexican artist Octavio Ocampo effectively uses negative space to create two distinct images that occupy the same space.  Do you see a tree and several birds or do you see the face of a woman?  You cannot view them both at the same time, but you can very easily flip-flop between the two interpretations.

For me personally, the first thing that I notice when viewing this painting is the woman’s face.  I have to focus on the tree on the left side of the painting in order to not see the her face.  Try using your hand to cover up the two birds at the bottom (representing the girl’s nose and mouth) and then all you will notice is the tree and bird at the top.
