It’s not recognized by everyone as a serious art form but personally I have always found great inspiration, drama and beauty in the world of fashion” -Bold and uniquely graphic style -work focuses on the portrait, in abstraction and elegance. Stark contrast, fractured space, and meticulous mark-making are a few elements present in her work. This Barcelona based illustrator's drawings are collages of deconstructed portraits and pencil-drawn and Pantone black monochromatic patterns collaged together creating works for fashion, editorial and high-end magazines as well. -I like how Anna Higgie ensures the pencil sketched image is explicitly to the forefront of her illustrations as you can almost feel the texture of the lead against the paper. Her images though softly outlined are graphic and veer towards mixed media art in places.
This presents a deeper, more truthful interpretation of reality through the practice of both synthetic and analytical cubism that reflects an avante garde style. Picassos reinterpretation of reality in is artwork “ Still Life with a Cane Chair” 1912 is a good example of Picassos thoughts and attitudes toward art. We can see evidence of Cubist ideas and theories of art that portray aspects of the modern world whilst showing Picasso’s obsession with being avant garde. In Picasso’s artwork the unique combination of materials used to create the work such as the use of oil painted abstract forms with collaged oil cloth and rope creates both multiplicity and relativity of life. This combination of analytical and synthetic cubism reflects Picasso’s interest in ideas perception and reality in painting.
She does this by creating hybrid creatures from mutilated dolls; she combines both young and old, and male and female body parts. “Untitled 188” (1992) is unmistakably meant to shock and terrify the audience. The shock and terror come from what the sexual element really stands for – death, power and aggression. In the artwork you can visibly see the mannequin’s sex organs; looking further into the photograph you can see her blank expression filled with helplessness and yearning. ‘Untitled 263’ depicts a hermaphrodite pelvis, mutilated and dislocated.
Rothko compares the shapes in his pictures to actors and his pictures to dramas. He says, “I think of my pictures as dramas; the shapes in the pictures are the performers. They have been created from the need for a group of actors who are able to move dramatically without embarrassment and execute gestures without shame.” That is to say, shapes are the expressive actors who illustrate the tragic feeling that Rothko intended to show. However, the way they illustrate this feeling needs to be interpreted by the viewer. The unique texture used by Rothko helps the painting look dynamic and expressive.
Although he briefly trained as a Naval Surgeon, Ferguson soon realised that his ambition was painting and he spent some time travelling in Spain, Morocco and France to develop his artistic knowledge and experience. The first painting I am going to discuss is 'The Pink Parasol' which is a portrait painted in 1908 of a fellow artist and friend Bertha Case, when they were both in Paris. In this painting Ferguson adopted much stronger colours than in his other paintings and like Matisse used green paint to represent shadows in the face. He emphasised pattern by merging the pink parasol with the background of his picture by blending it with the cold colours. The painting is of a woman peering over her shoulder, she is wearing a hat with a pink bow and is also wearing a scarf, in the background there is a pink parasol around strong blocks of cold colours.
I am fascinated by religious art, and found myself drawn to the Madonna and Child with the Infant Saint John the Baptist, which is a pen and ink drawing. I studied this drawing and noticed that the hands were not that defined and learned that Fra Bartolomeo had a practice of using wooden models or puppets, and he perfected his drawings as noted in the manner the hands and wrists were drawn. Fra Bartolomeo was famous for draping his wooden puppets so that he could bring his idea of perfection to fruition and complete his work without any time constraints. I am really into stained glass since we started studying them in class and Christ Carrying the Cross covers both of my interests – religious studies and stained glass. This particular stained glass is by Franz Fallenter and is really detailed.
His techniques and talent helped him paint very strong pictures of masculinity, and heroism, yet taking risks of painting in new ways. David’s interest was in classical art, Greek and Roman art, yet he would paint conflicts that were arising in France, and would show these conflicts through classical looking characters, and scenery. People were vastly interested in this new idea of art, because it did not directly portray the problems that France faced. In the portrait below, David portrays the Sabine Women as coming in between the Greeks and Romans because they already have children and lives with the Roman men, so warriors are only doing worse for the women if they continue fighting. The courageous women came into the war themselves to stop the fighting.

Melodramas constantly dramatise simple actions in order to highlight their importance or comedy to the audience, therefore these over-dramatic actions such as singing and being dragged by the ear, which often feed, into storybook stereotypes in such simple situations, help to shape the argument that A Doll’s House could be interpreted as a melodrama. However, another style that some say A Doll’s House is subject to is a Well-Made play. As Wilkie Collins succinctly defined the Well-Made play outline as “ Make ‘em laugh, Make ‘em weep, make ‘em wait”. Helmer refers to Nora as his ‘little skylark twittering out there’ and his ‘ squirrel scampering’, these outlandish and unusual pet names become a repetitive comical point as Ibsen plays on the ideas of animals in odd ways to show Helmer’s affection but also lighten up the mood of the play, making the audience
He is also, in his own way, an artist, whose aim is to create beauty, style, and ingenious fictions that delight both himself and the audience. Because he is an artist, he can be assumed to be close to a stand-in for the author. Algernon’s epigrammatic observations have a satirical edge, as they puncture the hypocrisies of conventional Victorian morality. For instance, his comment, “More than half of modern culture depends on what one shouldn’t
