I can just hear you I’m just starting to see how I have learned to segment my thinking, only using my creative skills in arenas where they have been deemed acceptable. Just realizing I have not only segmented my spaces, but also my approaches, and my systems (or lack of since artists has to break rules- at least in our stereotypical moments. The artist rebel in me is being held down and held back by these businessperson stereotypes and imagined rules. It is only acceptable to be an artist in certain contained spaces. Intellectually I don’t believe any of this, what you are saying is so true!
Although Howling Wolf’s drawing is seen as naively executed by the standards of Western art, why do we conclude that his record of the treaty signing event is more honest than the illustration rendered by the other artist? Howling Wolf’s drawing is viewed as naively executed by the standards of Western art; I would say that his record of the treaty-signing event is more honest and accurate than John Taylor’s illustration because of his upbringing was totally different. Howling Wolf was engaged in ledger book drawings as a way to document the events that took place in detail. In other words how it really happened. In addition, Howling Wolf created more decorative drawings that portrayed a strong sense of balance, symmetry, and rhythm.
Some of the various artists that it included were Michelangelo, Raphael, as well as Leonardo da Vinci. There was an intellectual sophistication found throughout the work and the details were slightly artificial in comparison to the clarity that was found in the earlier part of the Renaissance. There is a significant amount of debate regarding what is to be included within the Mannerist Movement, as some scholars have gone as far as including literature and music into the form and some Gothic painters have been said to be a part of the movement as well. For the most part, the Mannerist Movement took place solely in Italy and it was a way of having more compositional tension in comparison to what was being created through the majority of Renaissance art. As soon as the artists began to take an artificial approach to the scenes, this movement was born.
My poem is called Persuaded Concepts. I chose this name because I wanted to capture the brainwashing that takes place from basically the moment you’re born, as shown in the line “We are brainwashed from the moment we see the glare”. The image I’ve chosen is an MRI scan of a brain. My poem responds to this by talking about the fact that even though everyone is supposedly “different” we still have the same thinking, the same thoughts and that’s because we haven’t really been given the chance to think for ourselves, and we’re constantly influenced in one way or another. The techniques I have used to create imagery are similes, such as in the line “Like sheep we follow the travesty we call man” and I compare the human race to a flock of sheep.
And then, I will further my research by examining how the masterpiece has been reproduced under different contexts. Fig 1. Leonardo da Vinci, Mona Lisa (1503) The meanings are produced through a complex social relationship that involves at least two elements besides the image itself and its producer: (1) how viewers interpret or experience the image and (2) the context in which an image is seen. (Sturken & Cartwright, 2001, p45) According to Diane Shipley DeCillis, the owner of Southfield gallery, Mona Lisa is the most famous painting in the history of art and continues to inspire reproduction, parody, scientific theory, and more. Thus, I think Mona Lisa is the most suitable artwork for me to mediate different meanings produced since the Renaissance until the postmodern world.
Pound/Thoreau Ezra Pound is wrong in saying that Thoreau’s experiment at Walden Pond demonstrated his indifference to other humans. While Thoreau does provide some harsh criticism of society and humanity, he doesn’t go on his experiment simply to be able to do this; he could have said his criticisms without having ever had to go to Walden Pond. Thoreau goes to Walden not in indifference to humanity, but in an effort to help them. The entire experiment was to show how a person can reach inner fulfillment and how it isn’t necessary to have material objects for that. The world was going through a period of time where suddenly everything revolved around new industry and objects that could be bought and sold, and Thoreau could see this would bring about great change for both worse and better.
English 151 Feb 12th 2015 Summary In “A First Amendment Junkie” By Susan Jacoby, Jacoby writes an article about pornography saying how she does not have a problem with adult pornography in general, but she does have a problem with it when it involves censorship. Jacoby writes this article in regards to a Porno called “Deep Throat” produced by Larry Flynt. To begin, Jacoby states that Larry Flynt produces garbage, but at the same time she also feels that he being convicted was unfair, due to the fact that he was revoked of his freedom of speech. She then goes against feminists who believe that it is okay to censor pornography, saying that it will help anti feminists censor discussions of issues in the women’s movement. After making this point, Susan Jacoby then begins to move onto the topic of child pornography, saying that child pornography is not a first amendment issue, but an issue of child abuse.
If abstractness, projection of people’s emotions, and uselessness of art create morality in art, then the art itself cannot be moral or immoral, thus proving Wilde’s theory true. There are different examples in the book The Picture of Dorian Gray that shows Dorian’s projection of his own feelings onto art rather than just letting the art be a form of pleasure. Dorian constantly projects meaning and pulls out morals from art, which leaves Dorian feeling poisoned. At one point he even tells Lord Henry that he was never going to forgive him for being poisoned with a book (Wilde 180). Lord Henry responds to this by noting that Dorian was beginning to moralize, and this was a negative thing because he believed that the books and art themselves did not make morals, therefore art could not be poison.
The most important conclusion Shakespeare has drawn about the nature of humanity in King Lear is the fact that evil is not something the gods have cursed you with at birth but it is something that you choose for yourselfACt . The contrast he uses shows us that Edmoud had everything he needed to be good, he had the look and he had the attitude , but ultimately he chose to wrong path, he was blinded by power and his need to be treated as an equal. Later in that scene  after his brother is wounded Edgar affirms his belief that the gods play no hand in the evilness of the world through his dialogue “The gods are just, and of our pleasant vices make instruments to plague us” he states that the gods are fair and only punish us with our own wrong doings, even Edmoud agrees with him. Edmonds good side does make an appearance, towards the end of act 5 scene 3, “ Despite of mine own nature. Quickly send – be brief in it – to th’castle; for my wit is on the life of Lear and Cordelia” , in this remorseful dialogue Edmond`
You may think that a woman standing with a mysterious smile and those tender eyes are random but they were the ones that helped Leonardo De Vinci became a great artist of the world with ‘Mona Lisa’. You may think that those versions of Moonlight Sonata were random but it had helped Ludwig van Beethoven, a very poor German man became one of the most famous instrumental composers in the world. You may think that those abstract paintings of Picasso were random and that it was not worth millions of dollars that people want to spend on but it had meaning to it, and it had appealed to the buyers. All of the artistic and
