Form and Shape - Difference
We often interchangeably use the words form and shape. In visual arts they are different. While form has dimension (above image) shape is flat (the below one).

interesting Ganesh. To add. Shape you can perceive even with one eye. Incase of Form a lot of post processing is happening in the brain to combine two images.

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

I am yet to learn a lot here Ganesh. And I know my question cannot be answered here in text, but I must have looked at both the Form image and the Shape image multiple times, and I fail to see the difference apart from the obvious changes. But if you ask me why the top one is a Form and not a Shape I am not able to say. Can you point me towards the differentiating factors here between the two, if only it can be typed out that is, else I will wait for a few more decades to learn the differences ;)

Harsha, the B&W posted above (as well as the color version below) has dimension while the B&W below does not. Isn't that evident ? May be it is not ?!
