Overall, through my work, I explore the idea of how different materials can be use. I never settle for just one specific medium, but rather explore all that I can because I want to be able to incorporate the chaos of life. In sum, my work depicts my life in the idea that one is always trap, but does know of
Michelangelo once said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free”. If Michelangelo actually did this with every sculptor could modern artist be doing the same thing to follow in his footsteps. Michelangelo’s artwork affects modern society by influencing many modern-day artists to become sculptors, painters and more. He also influenced types of art such as frescoes and ceiling paintings. To add to this his sculptures are discussed in today’s conversations.
These poets were both significant and influential, which is why their poems are still shared throughout current generations. One similarity that is showed in Angelou’s “Still I Rise” and Hughes’ “I, Too” is that they both show self-confidence. Maya Angelou uses “I” multiple times in her poem to show how she has strength, she believes in herself, and she can rise above the mistakes to make a better future for herself. Hughes’ poem also has a repetition of “I” to show that he is self-confident and powerful. In addition, both poems share the feeling of beauty in them.
Homer depicts our greatest characters by strong men who made a difference in the ancient world. For example most of us know the stories of Odysseus, we’ve read The Odyssey and study greek culture. Their accomplishments are a milestone to how we construct our buildings today. City halls, schools, have features of their architecture because it shows knowledge and power. Now we get into The Odyssey and see that we’re more focused on individual achievements, things done by Odysseus, wills of the gods and tasks of the suitors.
This notion of Egypt proved to be an important turning point in Egyptian history, creating a new and diverse culture. Alexander was a pious man who began each day with sacrifices to the gods, consequently he was pleased to worship the Egyptian deities as he associated their gods with his own. At the Memphite necropolis of Sakkara Alexander offered sacrifices to the Apis bull a cult animal of the creator god Ptah. He originated Greek-style games and literary challenges which brought a number of people from all great distances and cultures to participate in these games. This brought the beginning of Hellenism and the merging Greek customs and traditions.
The religion and the Gods of the Ancient Greek are one of the most important aspect of the community. It is considered a fundamental part of life for the inhabitants of ancient Greek. That is why, the Greeks honored their Gods with public and private rituals, in special places such as sacred sites and temples. The Mount Olympus was an important sacred site, because it was the home of the major Gods.
The Greek sculptures reach the new height of beauty, not only because the mastery of the technique, but also the fascination of human body. Greek art uses the outer appearance to reflect the inner power, it is the representative pattern of western art. The myth inspires the creation of sculpture. The fantasy of nature and society and the admire of god’s shape and personality makes the sculpture more multiple and abundant.
After many years, I have always wanted to pursue a career in the art field. I have always been drawing and ever since it has evolved into many aspects with my creativity and inspiration but now I would like to begin my pathway on to Illustration. I have experience of various fields including oil painting, photography, graphic design and visual communication, my course I am studying currently helps develop these skills and test different techniques. I feel that this work environment, the amount of learning and independence and deadlines benefits myself, I always find it to be a positive element since I have found I create my best work under pressure and because I enjoy art I spend my hours away from work practising and want to continue to be
This gave rise to a school that specifically taught how to copy these materials and most of their sculptures showed the Hindu and Buddhist gods. Han Dynasty Empire considered art and carving to be among its key activities alongside Chinese painting and silk weaving. Craftsmanship and Jade carvings in this empire emerged as a product of goldsmiths and Jade cuts. Chinese always believed that jade contained some quantity of cosmic energy which was associated with high life quality (Hardy & Kinney, 23). Moreover, the Han Dynasty attained a sophisticated height in sculpture making when bronze was found in CE tombs in the North-West China.
Should we allow this art in our museums or in our schools? That is what authors Beisel, Dunkel, and Kristol are each discussing and sharing in their works. Although they may each come to different conclusions as to whether or not art should be censored, they each use facts, studies, and personal examples, to show ethos, pathos, and logos, to prove their argument. These discussions about free expression and censorship all come down to an assessment of the values that society finds most important.
We know so much about their daily lives: the way they govern; the way they conducted their religious and burial rituals; the gods they worshiped, the tools they used, and even the way they bonded with each other. It feels like these civilizations never left us. They are still part of us as much we are part of
All the exhibits in the gallery created this relation but the uniqueness of “Rites of Passage” and “Border Park of Earthly Delights” was that these pieces could be noticed and analyzed at a distance. The moment one entered the room, one can notice from far away that those two exhibits are different than all the other exhibits in the room because of the materials the piece uses. Once one would get closer to it, you would be able to see even more unique aspects of the art such as the artists incorporating biblical figures and drawings into the masterpiece. The closer we got, the more one feels into the drawing as if we are included inside the art piece. It feels like we are feeling the surrounding environment in the exhibit and this is most likely due to its three dimensional aspects it contains.
From the battles and fame to their leadership and loyalty both epic heroes gilgamesh and beowulf display the common characteristics of an epic hero. All throughout their journeys both heros come across situations that make them show who they really are and what they believe in. Although certain aspects of their leadership, journeys and personal beliefs are similar the way they display themselves in their personal and public lives make many of their characteristics differ from one another. The leadership styles and qualities of each character helps to define who they are as a person and what they believe in.
Art, the expression of human ability or imagination. Art is usually expressed visually, but should not only be limited to what you see, It can also be what you hear, or how a piece of art makes you feel. Art is timeless and today we still can appreciate work that was done many years ago. My favorite artist is Ed Roth. He was an artist, cartoonist, illustrator, pinstriper and custom car designer.
