Superflat is the Japanese postmodern art movement. Transparent: The quality of allowing light to pass through but not to the extent that the viewer can see through the colour. Two-Dimensional: Having length and width. Two-Point Perspective: Perspective formula using two vanishing points to which all parallel lines extend. Unity: The total effect of a composition resulting from the combination of all the work’s components. Value: The relative degree of lightness or darkness attributed to an area of colour by the amount of light reflected from it. Vanishing Point: An imaginary point used in linear perspective as the convergence of all lines that recede into space. Usually located at eye level. Di Peel, another Australian, spreads the paint on the canvas and dips her ample bosom into it. She then imprints her painted breasts onto a waiting canvas to create her art. She sells her paintings on her own website listed … Read the rest

Robert Motherwell was a young American ‘Abstract Expressionist’ painter, printer, collage maker, and author. This study examined the music used in tango dancing classes for people with Parkinson’s disease. The main aim was to determine if there were musical features common to the most beneficial pieces. Specialised software (MATLAB) was used to analyse the music’s tempo, beat clarity, key signature and brightness or energy levels. This was combined with data from the teacher and clinicians involved, they named the pieces or musical features they considered most successful. Results found the most successful music was in duple time with tempo range of 105 and 125 beats per minute. It had a clear, steady and always audible beat, an interesting melody and a musically cued ending. Kern, P., Wolery, M., & Aldridge, D. (2007).

Impressionism was called “The New Painting” and just what did the nineteenth-century artistic world mean by that? Gold et al. 58 studying the dose-response relationship in music therapy have shown that dosage was a highly significant predictor, with the number of sessions explaining 73{665e5bb4999eb4b63bc5cf86855959e213eef9597fcb7384ae9a16de7fc2db97} of the variance in effects on depressive symptoms; whereas design and disorder showed no relation to the effect size. This finding implies that more number of sessions of music therapy is required to treat depressive symptoms irrespective of the underlying disorder. 24. ^ For example, if elderly people lived in a retirement home, a standard daily routine or common everyday activities were seen as usual or regular treatment. If, on the other hand, a resting period (e.g., Chan et al., 2012 ) was carried out simultaneously, this was interpreted as an (non-music”) alternative. NOTE: The 1960s is generally seen as the decade when artistic values gradually … Read the rest

As noted by Harriet Flower in her foundational Ancestor Masks and Aristocratic Power in Roman Culture, ancestor portraits took on additional significance as the dominant feature in the first complex of rooms entered in the Roman house; this complex, which was also visible from the entrance, was designed for formal reception, business, and family ritual.Flower, Ancestor Masks, addresses, inter alia, the architectural framing of conceptual spaces for remembering, seeing, and being seen by ancestors in Greco-Roman tradition, paying special attention to the major role played by mantles in the construction of ancestral identity. Traditionally, lineage was displayed in the home in several ways. For example, images of famous ancestors might be shown with trophies located outside and around the entrance. Portraits in early imperial family trees were sometimes painted on the wall or on a board … Read the rest

Andy Warhol was a famous and well-respected American ‘Pop’ artist, considered even as a ‘Post Renaissance Man’ for his unique and unmatched style. Georgina McMaster art work explores aspects of our natural environment and specifically the animals around us. In using a largely blank background in her paintings, she makes the animal the prominent significant subject and she uses careful compositional techniques to give and bring out the animal’s personality and character.

Piet Mondrian (born March 7, 1872) was a Dutch painter who played a pioneering role in bringing art forms, such as ‘Neo-Plasticism’ and ‘Cubism,’ into limelight. The brain mechanisms that process temporal structure in music (tempo, rhythm and meter) have been less investigated than those that underlie pitch perception. These elements could be regarded as a temporal ‘hierarchy’ somewhat analogous to pitch interval, melody and harmony in the pitch domain. Impaired detection of rhythmic changes has been described in left temporoparietal stroke and left hippocampal sclerosis, while other studies have not demonstrated laterality differences. However, functional imaging studies have demonstrated activity in the lateral cerebellum and basal ganglia during the reproduction of a rhythm, and there may be distinct representations for sequences with time intervals in integer ratios (more common in music) compared with non-integer ratios. The observed activation of motor structures suggests that the perception and production of rhythm … Read the rest
