  1. Art Cutorial Assignment

    The ochre colour plain of the ground has been divided up into cubic shaped blocks, and the addition of the rhinoceros horns in the upper left-hand portion of the painting also refers to Dal�'s fascination with the molecular world. The melting watches and landscape of Cadaqu�s make another appearance herein, and the addition of the fish serves as a witness to the event. Dal� created this painting as a continuation of his themes of Nuclear Mysticism by applying a perspective of Divisionism to the original painting.

  3. Francis Bacon analysis

    The painting just looks really violent. There is the figure of the Pope sitting tightly upright with his face screaming in horror. The supports of the chair he's sitting on have been extended to the sides of the painting. The Popes top rob is violet, and the rest of his gown is white. This gives the painting a ghostly feeling to it. The painting shows that the Pope is screaming, yet it seems that his voice is drowned out by the dark drapes of colours that have covered the painting; this also lends a nightmarish and grotesque tone to it.

  4. Art Critical Review

    This shows a piano being played by women with broad colours shown on the wall. This shows that Impressionism and broad colours could have been used for other subjects beside landscapes. 2. I then moved on to another artwork which was within the gallery, and spotted someone buying a beautiful Impressionist painting. The painting was called Herrick's Blossoms and was painted by Charles Conder in 1889, pacifically for the 9x5 exhibit. This shocked me to see a landscape painting, painted in an international way. It was painted in Impressionist, with small brushstrokes and many different colours and tones mainly blue, green and light grey.

  11. Frontline uses the relationship between physical setting and dance content to great effect; compare this relationship to 4 other professional works you have studied

    There is a cyclorama used which creates the shadows at the back of the stage on the walls. This helps to create a frenetic feeling because it looks like there are more dancers than there actually are which make's it look more crowded and gives an effect on the audience. Red is also used in Frontline, which portrays the Russian heritage of the music; the importance of it is that the composer of the music is Dmitri Shostakovich, who is from Russia, that's why the red was used in the lighting so it can reflect the music, to show that's were Oguike got his ideas from.

  12. Henri matisse

    Also he liked bold simple shapes expressing dominance over details. 1941 he was diagnosed with cancer and, following surgery, he soon needed a wheelchair. This did not stop his work however, but as increased weakness made an easel impossible to use he created cut paper collages, often of some size, which still demonstrated his eye for colour and bold basic shapes. Today, a Matisse painting can sell for as much as US$ 17 million. In 2002, a Matisse sculpture, "Reclining Nude I (Dawn)," sold for US$ 9.2 million, a record for a sculpture by the artist.

  15. Develpment in the History of Photography

    The plate was the immersed in oil solvent that removed the bitumen that hadn't been affected by light. He called this discovery, "heliography". Limitations of the discovery were long exposure times and insensitivity of the bitumen; which gave little detail to the image and a blotchy appearance. Niepce despaired believing his method had little purpose or success until he received a letter from a man who had been carrying out similar experiments; Louis Daguerre. Niepce and Daguerre Within a year Niepce visited Daguerre in Paris and two years from then in 1829 a ten year partnership was agreed.

  16. An Introduction to Experimental Photography

    Hand Colouring Hand colouring refers to the process of selectively applying dyes to photographic prints with a fine brush. Obviously this can provide great emphasis if used effectively on black and white photos. Solarization and the Sabattier Effect Solarization was discovered by a French photographer named Armand Sabattier in 1862. It was an accidental discovery made by the unintentional severe over exposure of a print. Solarization is the partial or total reversal of the tones in a photographic image; caused by vast over exposure (it takes approximately 1000 times as much light used during an average exposure to solarize an image).

  17. Global Warming

    Haven't we all seen the picture of ice melting in the Artic? For most people that is the evidence. MYTH: The earth has experienced a steady, very gradual temperature decrease for 1000 years, and then recently began a sudden increase. FACT: Significant changes in climate have continually occurred throughout geologic time. For instance, the Medieval Warm Period, from around 1000 to 1200 (when the Vikings farmed on Greenland) was followed by a period known as the Little Ice Age. Since the end of the 17th century the "average global temperature" has been rising at a low steady rate. MYTH: Global temperatures are rising at a rapid, unprecedented rate.

    How about scientific evidence? Well, that's easy. Haven't we all seen the picture of ice melting in the Artic? For most people that is the evidence. A little research into the modern temperature trends shows that in 1936 America experienced 49 consecutive days with temperatures over 32 degrees. In 1992 it was only one day. Also during the ice age there was at least 15 times more carbon dioxide in the air then know. Eventhough we are releasing carbon dioxide into the air we won't do any harm to anyone, as the carbon dioxide is as pollutant as nitrogen.

  19. J.M.W. Turner The Fighting Temeraire tugged to her last Berth to be broken up. Critical Analysis.

    It currently hangs in the National Gallery in London. Over the following paragraphs I will be discussing the conceptual framework in relation to 'The Fighting Temeraire, tugged to her Last Berth to be broken up' whilst simultaneously concentrating on the relationship of J.M.W. Turner, his artwork ('The Fighting Temeraire'), his audience, and also the world/influences that surrounds the painting. J.M.W. Turner had devoted almost his entire life to painting, producing over 20,000 paintings. His one great desire in life was to be an artist, and drawing on different aspects of Impressionism, he could be said to have laid down the foundation for the genre.

  21. Expanded Programme Note

    I make two strong, isolated movements changing my weight to signify the square, with my arms in parallel lines. I finish my motif with a drag slide to the floor with circular arms to signify the circle. Choreographic devices: I used the development of my movements to show that I was reaching out and finding my own personality and individuality. To develop my motif I did the ronde de jambe in the air and took the spring step as a jump, raising the levels and elevating as well. I take the reteir�s turning as a pos� turn to vary the triangle movement.

    If you were to look closer with a microscope you could examine the cells that make up your skin. This is a scale of micrometres (one-thousandth of a millimetre), sometimes referred to as the microworld. A nanometer is used to measure things that are very small. Atoms and molecules, the smallest pieces of everything around us, are measured in nanometer. One nanometer is 0.000000001m or 1nm. A nanometer is a unit of measure. Just like inches, feet and miles. A nanometer is one-billion of a meter. A meter is about 39 inches long.

  24. Howard Arkley (1951-1999) was an Australian artist, born in Melbourne.

    For almost 30 years, Howard Arkley produced some of the most idiosyncratic and iconoclastic art in Australia. Using a range of techniques from the commercial airbrush to conventional artists' tools, Arkley's work attracted and balanced critical and commercial success, professional and popular appeal. This retrospective of Howard Arkley's work celebrates his singular contribution to 20th century Australian art. (http://www.theblurb.com.au/Issue73/Arkley.htm) My Response- impressions, feelings and understanding: When entering the area where Howard Arkley's works were displayed, I felt I was in a children's playground or a children's tv show.
