Some of the lines are layering, scraping and bold. Also the use of implied lines within the work art creates a sense of movement or direction. For instance, we perceive a line by following the direction indicated by her eyes. In this work of art negative space is employed under several forms, an example of that is the “vee"-shaped negative space facing the both sides of the portrait between both arms and thighs. It creates a balance between the two sides (bottom) of the portrait.
She was not afraid to experiment with the patterns, sizes, design, and the intricacy to detail, which often took on the resemblance of the female form in many of her works. She took the discretion to make small parts large and vice-versa, she changed the colour balances, and created disharmony, which would force those who looked at these pieces of art, to see the images as something else. In her work, she also stretched the visual edges, to design features which had metaphysical implications in many of her pieces. Symbolism was something that she did not shy away from, and this showed in much of the work she did of this nature, and with many of the designs which she included flowers and landscape features. She was not afraid to experiment
She used different kind of materials in her artwork for example unique gouache, tracing paper, unique colored crayon and pencil on paper, original woven wool, original gouache and pochoir on paper and some other materials I didn’t mention. She prolonged Orphism values to the design of fabrics, pottery decoration, stage sets, and other applied arts. During the 1920s, Delaunay designed textiles and dresses, and her use of abstract colors had a strong influence on international fashion. But she basically known for her use of strong colors and geometric shapes she did a lot of abstract work using circles and geometric shapes I think they may have even called it orphism.. Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, the combination of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing.
Holder's work tends to be organic rather than angular; and she enlivens the two-dimensionality of her compositions with modeled elements. Holder had several series; What’s Black and White and Red All over, Warrior Women Wizards: Mystical Magical Mysteries, Behind Each Window, and Let the Future Reveal. In each of the series the themes seem to be about past history of racism, about the elastic nature of women, and about her history of her Brooklyn neighborhood from which she remembers. All of Holders pieces are all special to me because they all tell a different story, but there is one that really grasps my attention. No Toy Guns, 1998 from “What’s Black and White and Red All over”; a bi-racial image showing police brutality, childhood and ethnic identity.
A reactive approach is taken towards Allison's creative process, as she states that she allows her painting to do the 'talking', as she splatters paint in an unpredictable manner and interpreting random composition and works on multiple pieces at once. “Many of my recent pieces are juxtaposed with titles taken from people's online status messages or tweets. People carefully construct their dream selves with each online status update or cut of a surgeon's knife; I have built a colourful, moody, psychedelic world where these fantasies roam freely.” Allison's current art work makes use of bold texture and rhythm which aims to create a psychedelic experience inspired by dreamscapes, nature, the capacity of human consciousness which explores human psychology and behaviour, and also likes to make her art work appear somewhat paranormal. She wants to viewer to feel as if they're being taken somewhere, “When people look at my work, I want...I want it to take them somewhere,” a place of creations and self
Many novels in this genre tackle personal issues such as dating, relationships, weight issues, life issues and many more. Often told from a point of view that pulls the audience in as if the narrator is confiding in them, Chick Lit novels offer something to identify with, and a great percentage of the audience take comfort from this. I love the odd book to read that’s light and funny and easy going and I am one hundred per cent a sucker for a happy ending; everything that is beheld in a Chick Lit novel, but can we call it literature and is it really any good when compared to Authors such as Stephen King and

Anna Gaskell: The Struggle For Identity “It’s about the suspension of disbelief, the possibility of the impossible, the absence of doubt, and the completeness of faith” –Anna Gaskell. Anna Gaskell is a profound artist that is part of the generation who is passionate about feminist conceptual photography. Each body of work appears to narrate, but hinders one’s ability to draw clear connections among the images. Gaskell’s work is distinct, in a way that most of her series’ are of adolescent girls that reference mind games, literature, and psychology. Her art pertains to surrealism, and relates to fantasy, horror, female sexuality, and the subconscious.
“Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” is one of Pablo Picasso’s most famous artworks; it is credited as the beginning of cubism. This oil on canvas painting is almost square at 243.9cm x 233.7cm, and depicts five nude women in still form. “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” is semi-abstract, for the women are unrealistic but still recognisable. The women in this paining are (as many women who pose for art are) prostitutes. This explains the artworks title, which translates to "The Young Women of Avignon”.
All of these further the aesthetic look of his work as well. He uses tone in his work as it makes the portraits look 3D and stop it being cartoony. This also makes it more aesthetic to a bigger audience as adults will prefer realistic portraits typically. MJ uses bright, powerful colours as they create a striking image. The woman in the portrait is deep in thought maybe day dreaming this then suggests that all the patterns are her thoughts being expressed.
