Abstract

We try to valorise two formal components favourable to aesthetic experience in the interaction between the beholder and the images, and we are dealing with the process of “Amodal Completion” (Michotte, Thinés & Crabbé, 1967; Bonaiuto 1988), which has frequently been proposed in visual art works, as already noted by Kanizsa (1988). This perceptual effect is opposite to, but sometimes integrates, the opposite illusions called masking effect. It creates a figure-ground process that can highlight object identity or, in different cases, reduce object identity. The series of “texture effects” are based on “screen effects” and produce a masking effect of single elements that are partially assimilated to the background. These perceptual effects of ambiguity enhance aesthetic experience.
