Surface

DEFINITION

The outer or topmost boundary or layer of an object. Colors on any surface are determined by how incident rays of light strike it, and how a surface reflects, scatters, and absorbs those rays. The material qualities of a surface, as well as its form and texture further determine how it is seen and felt.Quote: "In contemporary art, surface is an expression of anxiety, and no one is as anxious about surface as I am." Charles Ray (contemporary), American sculptor living in California. 1998.
