She has to add “an apple-onion stuffing” (13) just to make it interesting. The metaphor of this poem creates a vivid image of the brother's and sister's personalities, and how the character is able to deal with them. The author creates a cannibalistic environment with her cooking terms, but is able to make it light hearted through the overall
When situational irony is applied to a story, there often is an unexpected twist in the plot, typically leaving a reader surprised. For instance, O. Henry of “The Ransom of Red Chief” uses situational irony in a comedic manner, whereas Guy de Maupassant uses situational irony to provide a sense of pity towards the protagonist. Nevertheless, authors tend to use situational irony to allocate sentiment. Author O.Henry of “The Ransom of Red Chief” employs situational irony to create a humorous effect within his short story. One example of this humorous irony is when the child’s kidnappers, Bill and Sam, end up paying a bounty to the child’s guardian.
His work was large in scale, flamboyant in color, and fluidity. He is most closely linked with what is known as action painting. No drop of paint is an accident and loose, rapid sweeping brushstrokes make this style reminiscent of the Surrealists. Pollock became influenced by Picasso, Miro alongside Rothko and the surrealists but soon developed his own unique style which he would later become famous for. Mark Rothko’s technique of painting departs from Pollock’s actions.
Art has played a big role in our society for over a million years. Art is known as a way of communication. Artists all over the world have expressed their ideas and emotions through paintings, installations, sculptures, and performances. Francesco Zugno, Alfred Jensen, and Xu Bing are artists from different centuries with different themes, styles, and techniques. Francesco Zugno was a painter during the Late Baroque period.
Baroque paintings also give an indication as to what was consumed during the time period. For instance, Annibale Carracci’s The Beaneater depicts a peasant eating beans with some bread and wine. Kitchen Still-Life, painted by Evaristo Baschenis, shows many and different types of fowl. Figs, grapes, apples are shown in Boy with a Basket of Fruit while peaches and quinces were in the 17th century Still-Life by Fede Galizia. In addition to the food, the fork is another utensil incorporated into Italian culture because of the Renaissance.
The Kiss v. Gnaw “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see” (Edgar Degas). There are hundreds of artworks in progress right now, all around the world, and every single one of these pieces have a common goal, as all art does, which is to communicate. An artist aspires to express themselves and their ideas to others through their work, therefore every piece they make tends to have some underlying, or obvious, meaning for their viewer to interpret. The Kiss and Gnaw share the same goal as well. These pieces express different perceptions of one subject, which is love.
There is an alternate way of perceiving and digesting images. When truly appreciating an image you look not only at what is shown within, but how the images make you feel. Paintings mirror the life you have lived as you see a little amount of yourself in each of the paintings you absorb. The emotional cues and the representations of struggle, life, love, and death should
Compliant, the reader accepts what appears to be a simple statement of the facts, a statement that will evolve into an accusation. The next two stories are different. They describe two scenarios that the readers view as foreign, initially imagining the bread in these stories to be different from that in the first, their bread. The language is very matter-of-fact, while the scenes she describes are grotesque: “She is starving, her belly is bloated, flies land on her eyes; you brush them off with your hand.” This is seductive, as Atwood paints the scenes without immediate explanation of their significance. It is almost as if she is telling a joke, and the reader is waiting for the punch-line, expecting it to be someone else who is embarrassed.
Nathaniel Hawthorne has a very unique usage of language to describe and paint a picture of Hester. One important thing he does is use many different types of tones throughout the story that correlate with the way the Puritans look at Hester. Hawthorne also does a good job of using symbolism to depict an image of Hester through many different type of symbols, the most significant being the scarlet A on her chest. Lastly, Hawthorne does a good job of putting direct quotes from the Puritan people describing Hester, which allows the reader to see exactly what they think about her and shows the way society creates a picture of her. Hester also fits the description of many of things mentioned in Proverbs 31:10-31 which describes a wife of noble character.
Symbolism in general is the building blocks to all sources of literature and can shape a piece of writing in many ways. Symbols in general can portray what something or someone represents, giving a deeper and metaphorical meaning to a symbol. Symbolism is often used within poetry, literature, music, or even art. This is how an author conveys a different meaning to the audience. For example artists may use the color “red” not only because of the color theory, but to convey love, passion, and maybe even health.
To fully understand how an art network works it can help to relate it to an artist. For example, Vincent van Gogh was an artist who strived to imbue all of his art pieces with emotion. With the emotion in mind that he wanted to convey, he used his imagination to come up with a style that would serve his purpose. His style was different from others before him because he chose a differing color palette and it was quite bold. His choice of colors differed with his
Created Through the Eye Why do we all have different interpretations of art? Because we all are different in some way, our identity defines us and how we look at the world while our actions shape us and world around us. The works of Wenda Gu and Gordon Bennett both reflect aspects of their identity, whether that be personal, spiritual, cultural or psychological. Both artist are similar in many ways, notably for their reflection on personal experiences as cultural minorities. Gordon Bennett successfully portrays his personal experiences as well as the cultural influences in his artworks.

Art can interpret in many different ways. Art can have a special meaning. Art has shown what society is going through at any given moment over the years.
Food from Spain and Latin America After I read chapter 1, “Latino Food Culture” I realized that food from Latin America are different from food from Spain. We can see that the base of Mexican food was laid by the people that domesticated maize. In comparison, the Greeks gave the Spanish cuisine the gift of olives and olive oil. Also, Jews and Carthaginians contributed to the Spanish cuisine rather in Mexico were Aztec and Mayan. The moors brought fruits, nuts, fish which were considered as appetized in Spain, rather in Latin America, beans, chiles, vanilla, chocolate, tomatoes, avocadoes, squash and fruits originated from Mesoamerica were essential to them.
Colour and texture are paramount in the work. Each painting is unique, with a tactile presence, which reveals the hand of the artist. The image, which was the product of a split second drive by photo, now takes on substance through both the physicality of the paint, and through the contemplation of place and time. In this, the paintings come to represent more of a testament to her experience than the photographs. In the essay An Art That Eats Its Own Head – Painting in the Age of Images Barry Schwabgley acknowledges photographs place in contemporary art while also confirming the significance of painting, “ Although it was
