• All areas of a painting/drawing are designed to attract equal attention, with no particular area more eye-catching than any other area


Artists might choose to equalize attention in order to communicate the equal importance of all of the subjects/shapes in a painting, to show the subjects/shapes to be a part of more unified field, or an artist might use equalization to allow the eye to move freely across the piece. Such a lack of hierarchy might be used to motivate the viewer to identify with many characters that are given equal respect and attention. Or, if the artist wishes to evoke monotonous repetition, he or she might choose equalization.
