Asemics # 2 contribution from John Bennett

advice

Hey people.. how can I create more depth and dimension in my artwork? Right now my things seem to be sort of minimalist which is ok too but now I want to add more dimension. Anybody have any ideas how to do that? I appreciate the pieces here that have different dimensions and perspectives.???thanks for any hints, cheryl h.
