She uses different types of art mediums as well ranging from films to fabric. Though she is better known for her photography. Carrie Mae Weems focuses her art around culture, gender, and identity most often centered around the struggle of African Americans. She in fascinated by the human body, particularly the movement and the way it works. She uses her own body at times in her own artwork to show her interest.
Her creativity and fame has set an example of how a Mexican woman can succeed in a country that has done so much to keep Mexican women in the bottom tier. Intriguingly, her fame was a result of her ability to include controversial topics in her art. She was very expressive on how she felt during difficult times in her life
The color is shown everywhere in the story like in a reference of her husband, when she dies and, in this quote “Their eyes followed the match and watched the flame rise and settle in a blue curve, then they moved away from her (Porter, Page 624). This moment symbolizes the understanding that all four of her children are grown up. Granny’s surname, Weatherall is a symbol in itself. It symbolizes the obstacles that she has overcome throughout her life. Such as being jilted by George, losing her husband, her loss of a child, and having to take care of the children by
She has been studied in regards to her gender, her life experiences and her art, most often a combination of the three. Many of the discourse on Artemisia and how her biography affected her work is also centered around two of her most famous images: Judith and Holofernes and Susanna and the Elders. Despite this, it is useful to mention that in a catalogue of her work in Florence, 15 of her paintings imagined women as subjected to male control or male lust otherwise owe their fates to men and where more than half of her subjects (excluding portraits) carry implications of sexuality (573). She has been heralded as a painter of strong women, and many feminist art historians have taken this as a sign that Gentileschi was a feminist. Others, like Ward Bissell, have debated that she would not be considered a feminist, even by 17th century standards, and that her success was merely a result of her response to the market conditions of the time.
Here she lived in a community that had high ideals of socialism and feminism (Ben-Zvi). This influence encouraged her to create female characters who desired to free themselves from the stereotypical roles into which they had been cast (Ben-Zvi). Glaspell was one of the most influential playwrights to come from the Provincetown collaborative, and Trifles in particular has come to be known as a feminist work that deals with the psychology of crime through the lens of female domesticity (Biography of Susan Glaspell). With acting in the group, Glaspell wrote eleven plays for the Provincetown Players between 1915 and 1922. The Provincetown Players manifested to be extremely successful.
Carmen Calvo is one of the most creative, influential, and eccentric contemporary artists of today's Hispanic culture. With works such as No es lo que parace ("It's not what it looks"), Calvo has certainly earned the right to call herself a true artist. With early influences of Post-Minimalism as well as Pop Art, Calvo has managed to establish her own distinctive identity via the usage of visual language. What makes her work so eccentric is her ability to take one object that generally has very deep associations with history and manipulate it using mixed media, or multiple mediums, to have a completely different meaning. In one of her paintings, for example, there is a boy reading a book.
Portraiture is important for all because it has the ability to draw the viewer into a different dimension, perhaps being inside the artist’s mind or into the setting of the artwork. Artists possess this power by skilfully using manipulation of various elements of design and working them into the piece in a way that all the elements fit together in a beautifully abstract puzzle. Frida Kahlo’s ‘Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird’ from 1940 and ‘Janet Laurence’, by John Beard made in 2007 are to be deconstructed and compared in this essay. Mexico’s nationally recognized Kahlo was a woman of pain, experiencing many accidents that resulted in Kahlo being confined to her house, undergoing 30 operations and painting more from the growing
One of Zaha Hadid’s greatest influences was Kasmir Malevich. She believed that her interest in abstraction grew due to his works (“The Relationship between Fine Art and Architecture: Kazimir Malevich and Zaha Hadid.”). She said, “I was so obsessed with his work when I was studying and in my early career that I read it over and over again” (“Video: Zaha Hadid Discusses the Influence of Kazimir Malevich on Her Work.”). Her deep philosophical relationship with the artist can be seen in her early work (“Video: Zaha Hadid Discusses the Influence of Kazimir Malevich on Her Work.”). The two artists had many similarities and conveyed their ideas in parallel ways.
We will analyse, in this essay, the differences as well as the similarities which exist between Jane Eyre and Incidents in the life of a slave girl written by herself. We will see that they differ in terms of genre, the period of history in which they find themselves, the way the characters are presented and so forth. However, they share some of the main values concerning womanhood, race and some other aspects of life which they both treat in different ways and yet they do so in a specific aim. Charlotte Brontë and Harriet Jacobs present to us two texts which are both based in totally opposite moments in history. While many differences exist between the two texts, they have several aspects in common.
They looked like the enormous tears of a Pietà. They were not, on the whole, what her mother would have chosen. 10 Michelangelo's sculptural masterpiece, Pietà, depicts the body of Jesus Christ on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. With this amazing and subtle foreshadowing used by the author, we can see the true mother's suffering and how Mary's grief is transformed into her grief. The passage quoted is the very end of the part of the story where the mother is remembering the events from two years ago and it marks the end of the flashback.
