As a major believer of recovering through rest, I believe that a lot of his mental ailments (“He began in a sort of dusk of self-sorrow and fury…” (147)), could have been solved through some time off to heal. I noticed that the characterization of Andy goes back and forth; one moment, “he got better” (148), and soon after he was experiencing, “self-pity and despair” (150). I’m assuming that this fluctuation
Goldsworthy’s work is truly the Andy Goldsworthy is a British photographer and sculptor. Goldsworthy was born in July 29, 1956 in Cheshire, England. Andy was raised in West Yorkshire and worked in a farm as a child. Through the experiences he had as a farmer, Andy developed an intense awareness of his environment and appreciation for the ephemeral qualities of landscape. Andy studied Fine Art at Bradford school of art and Preston Polytechnic at Preston, Lancashire.
Formal Analysis The artist Andy Warhol created 32 Campbell 's Soup Cans from 1962, intrigued of the meaning, many inquired about what caused the desire to paint something so plain yet unique, he simply replied, “I wanted to paint nothing. I was looking for something that was the essence of nothing, and that was it”. This painting has a dearth of emotion and personality to it. This painting is exactly a soup can, a painting of modern art.
Description Andy Warhol constructed the painting ‘32 Campbell’s Soup Cans’ in early 1962. The exclusive frames are lined flush four by eight alongside the other relative canvases. Each enclosed structure is approximately 20 inches by 16 inches. Piece by piece, the Campbells Soup Cans were individually painted with a different assortment of flavors, listing of the top left corner with a tomato soup can thoroughly to the bottom right corner ending with turkey vegetable soup. The series of Campbell’s soup cans exposes each type of soup.
His parents got divorced when he was 12. His dad was an alcoholic up until he died. He has two siblings, when he was young his brother, Mark, and him didn’t get along too well. Mark went through a lot of difficulty in his childhood, he tried to commit suicide the same year that their parents got a divorce. Young Andy was close to his younger sister when they were kids.
They moved to New York traveling around for work. Andy struck gold and set up his whole career with a comedic monologue in 1953 called “What it Was, Was Football.” Then offers came in from everywhere, he guest starred on the Ed Sullivan Show then started doing plays, and musicals on Broadway. No Time For Sergeants was a big hit in 1955 that got him a Tony nomination. In 1960 he earned yet another Tony nomination in Destry Rides

Museum of Modern Art, New York (). 200 Campbell’s Soup Cans done by Andy Warhol consists of 200 silk screen printed canvases, one of each of the canned soup varieties the company offered at the time of creating the artwork (Collins 2012: 136). You find two focal colours on the cans, these being red and yellow.
He fought inside himself for not compromising to the prisoner-life and tried to be a ‘normal and free’man. Another example that symboled his will to gain freedom is the library. The library in Shawshank had a fairly important position, for it endowed the prisoners change to learn. And Andy paid a lot efforts to get it bigger and better. Somehow, I felt the greatness of Andy was not only
I also found one other really good piece of information I think really represents Andy’s characterization. As he lies there he realizes thing could have different and every choice he makes impacts everything that could happen. “ And he wondered suddenly if the Guardians who has ambushed him and knifed him had ever once realized he was Andy?” (Hunter 6). He sees that no one really see him as Andy and no one cares what his really name is they just see him as a Royal.
At the beginning of the short story, Andy was stabbed as he was walking on the sidewalk by a member of the Guardians’ gang. Andy is a member of the Guardians’ rival gang, the Royals. Prior to him being stabbed, his ideal life is as a Royal due to the fact that his main goals were to attain a certain status in the community. In Andy’s mind, joining the Royals gang would accomplish these goals. “He could remember how happy he was the Royals has taken him.
I knew how bad it looked. I didn't have much time, but the time I had, I operated” (p. 75) Andy is a very confident character that makes all the right moves. Whether it'd be outsmarting the inmates with words or knowing when to not say anything, he just stands out in a very positive way. The Rita Hayworth poster is a very deep symbol in the book.
This is important to notice because it tells the readers that Andy was by no means innocent and it reveals his sins. After a couple had wandered into the alley and refused to help him because of the name on his back, he then thought of death, he thought “Now in the alley, with the cold rain washing his hot body, he wondered about the meaning. If he died, he would die as Andy.” Andy continued to think about the meaning of his
Andy got rid of his bullies (Bogs and the Sisters) who assault and rape him for 2 years. He built an amazing library and taught people how to read and write to obtain their high school diploma. Eventually, Andy succeeded in his prison escape and left to Mexico with almost 400 thousand in cash. I did not expect Andy to ever leave the prison after Norton and Hadley kill Tommy. Andy inspired Red to be hopeful.
Andy died wishing he was seen as the individual person he was, not just a Royal. He wanted to be recognized as a person who had hopes, dreams and fears too. Sadly, although he tried to push away his past as a Royal, his life of living for it was too strong and not many thought of him as Andy after he died, most saw him as a Royal. It makes us think, how to we want to be remembered when we die? Do you want to be remembered as part of a group, or do you want to be remembered as the unique and wonderful person God created you to
Pop art era originated in New York during the mid-1950s and ended in the early 1970s. It focused on familiar places in citizen’s day to day life, creating commercial images and during this time Pop art boomed because of the media World War II was receiving. Roy Lichtenstein’s painting “WHAAM!” would mostly fall under the category of the Pop art era for the reasons being that it is based on an image from a DC comic “All American Man of War” which was published by DC comics in 1962. Lichtenstein presented a powerfully charged scene in an impersonal manner, leaving the viewer to decipher the meaning for themselves. The painting is in a comic style of art (Pop Art) and depicts two fighter jets (one owned by the United States the other owned by the Soviet Union) in the air with one shooting a missile towards the other jet with a humongous “WHAAM!”
