This conceptual artist has taken basic elements of art such as lines and color and has created this amazing two dimensional artwork, Vertigo. In this artwork the artist uses regular lines, a rhythm of diagonal lines, and a slight tint of an orange in the background of the actual lines. The different directions, overlapping, and crossing of the lines, help imply the chaos and disorder the artist is trying to reveal through this painting.
Colors represent a multitude of aspects in the life of any human being on Earth. Colors show the feelings, issues, turmoil, and jovial positions a human being goes through each day of their life. In the novel, The Outsiders, S. E. Hinton utilizes coloration to accentuate certain facets of her novel. The main protagonist, Ponyboy, progresses through a great deal of sentiments in his “greaser” life and faces quite a few of life altering events, all affecting his mental, emotional, and physical state. Throughout the story, S. E. Hinton portrays the changes and feelings Ponyboy endures through the colors, and shades, of red, gold/yellow, and blue.
“It is a sin to write this,” begins Anthem, and the digression of the society around him slowly falls. The argument asks if I reason about the Equality’s sins being evil or marvelous. The outtake of his decision decides his fate on the community around him, lifeless slaves being controlled by the government. So, I believe his sins are for the greater good. It shows that he is not a enslaved monkey in a science lab, but the arrogant monkey who refuses to do the tests. He shows the people around him what it feels like to be independent, and the feeling of color. Here is a quote to represent the curiosity about him, “What -- even if we have to burn for it like the Saint of the pyre -- what is the Unspeakable Word?” (Rand 57)
Time is the motif of the short story “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by Ambrose Bierce. Peyton Farquhar tried to set an important bridge on fire to help the confederalist but was captured by the federalist during the American Civil war. For this he is to be hanged until dead but manages to free himself. Thanks to his use of imagery, symbolism, and plot structure Bierce created a story where time is fluid and not rigid.
an everyday normal occurrence (going to a pool house) that most people will pass off is captured in a light that puts a new perception on the normal. I’d say that this is to me the most “artistic” piece because it seems so real, and so gritty and stripped back. It seems like someone who had professional training for painting decided to break every rule that he needed to just to make something he saw with his artistic eye the way we saw it.

Released in 1958, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo was a film centering around lies and obsession. After being released from his job as a detective after he got acrophobia, John “Scottie” Ferguson is asked to follow his friend’s wife, Madeleine. Scottie starts up an affair with her, being drawn to her mystery. After she commits suicide, Scottie struggles with guilt. When he sees another version of Madeleine, his obsession pushes him to remake the woman into Madeleine. His obsession leads him to uncover the lies of his friend and eventually leads to his downfall. Through purposeful coloring of the background and costumes, Alfred Hitchcock connects color to Scottie’s loss of individuality and varying mental states with blue representing Scottie’s sense
Depending on which piece of the collection is viewed, vertical parallel or horizontal lines varying in weight stretch across the composition. The vertical lines give Germaux’s piece a strong and stable feel, whereas the horizontal lines provide a more calming feel for the viewer. The repetition of parallel lines in Parallel Play creates beauty through dissimilarity. The predictable order of the parallel lines contrasts the stir of circles located adjacent and causes the lines to beautifully model simplicity and structure. In addition, by painting dark contour lines around the colorful circles, Germaux is able to aid the viewer in distinguishing the individual circles and identifying the beautiful pattern that they
In the book first part last there are many symbols that represent the idea of coming of age. There was a basketball, a doctors note, a ghost face, and the colors black, blue, red, and green.
He was a post-impressionist artist responsible for “his own more bold and conventional style” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). He is, of course, most famous for his painting, “Starry Night.” Van Gogh was known to be “highly emotional, lacking self-confidence, and struggling with his identity and direction” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). When he finally decided to pursue art, he had already endured many hardships. He had gone through two unhappy relationships and worked unsuccessfully as a bookstore clerk, an art salesman, and a preacher, where he was “dismissed for overzealousness” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). Throughout his entire career as an artist, he only sold one painting. He lived in poverty, and suffered from severe malnourishment and sleep deprivation. All of his sufferings sent him spiraling into “fits of madness and lucidity,” which ultimately placed him the Saint-Remy institution after cutting off his own earlobe in attempts to murder his friend and fellow artist, Gaugin (“Van Gogh Gallery”). Van Gogh’s anguish heavily influenced his art. His “fusion of form and content is powerful; dramatic, lyrically rhythmic, imaginative, and emotional,” because he was “completely absorbed in the effort to explain either his struggle against madness or his comprehension of the spiritual essence of man and nature” (“Van Gogh Gallery”). Without his struggles and his pain, Vincent Van Gogh could not be the prominent artist that he has become. His inventive style,
For children, drawing involves both a process (making of art) and a product (the completed art expression). These drawings need to be considered within the context of the child’s developmental, social, cultural and emotional experiences. (Malchiodi, 1998). I have chosen to examine three drawings by C, an 8-year-old girl I have been having therapeutic play sessions with. She was referred to me by her father, due to her inability to concentrate at school, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, which cause her to get into trouble at school, and in social situations. C is an only child, living at home with her parents. She is Taiwanese, and her mother tongue is Mandarin.

There are heavy layers of oil paints that shadow and reveal where the man scrapped the paint off or placed a lot to create an impression of depth. There were streaks of paint that covered his hands, which held a paintbrush, tip upward, which provided the paint that showed on his hands and parts of his clothing.showed his hurry to complete the piece and gives a . The three heads on this canvas, entitled Self Portrait, is larger than life, with the three ages of Johnson all looking down on me as the viewer as if he was judging my right to judge his art, all eyes seemed to follow my every movement. This does fit his main ideas for the first several years, all the images on the canvas resembled and were meant to symbolize him, plus the concept of time was one of his biggest drives while he painted the images. Another aspect was that the image had a left to right style of paint of brush strokes to it, since the man moved across the surface, paint brush sweeping in broad strokes, in a motion that somehow gave the painting a sense of motion and energy that this artist viewed as the whole point of creativity. There is even a glint in his eyes and the suggestion the man was amused by my reaction. The real painting made the various critics who wrote rave reviews make a little sense, though I still do not particularly like the style of this
The Van Gogh bedroom exhibit was a showing of his career from the beginning when he began painting in Nuenun with some of his earlier works all the way to the very end when he was in the Saint-Paul asylum. The exhibit mainly highlighted the pinnacle of his career, which was the painting of the three bedrooms. Each one so similar but extremely different if looked at very closely. Through this time frame Van Gogh’s form had drastically changed from when he began with landscape portraits such as “Rural Village at Night”. What characterized his beginning works were dark bleak colors, evident brush marks and noticeable texture from said brush marks. This period was very dark and vapid but once Van Gogh had moved to Paris and began some his other works such as “View from
