This technique for creating three dimensional effects is partly derived from computer modelling - the "wireframe". There are several ways that the "crease"or wave achieves its illusion of depth: perspective, contrast and colour saturation are key The lowest band of colour is the darkest and widest, the upper ones are thinner and fainter. Colour fades increasingly into the canvas towards the top and the contrasts between the bands get weaker. The fall of light adds volume, and the framing in a black circle makes it look as if it's seen through a telescope.
