Body adornment has always included body painting, tattooing, and other kinds of body art, this has been the case over the ages; but in recent times, body art has become more varied and endlessly creative. Thomas Nozkowski: Recent Work (exhibition catalogue). Interview by Garth Lewis. New York: The Pace Gallery, 2010. Number 31 (One) – During the summer and autumn of 1950, Jackson Pollock completed three black paintings in quick sequence, Number 31 being the first of three. This oil and enamel on canvas shows off his mastery of the “drip” technique. What is unique about this painting is that there is no specific point of focus and there is no obvious pattern or repetition; nevertheless, the chaos is controlled. Some of the enamel is matte, and some glossy. The colours weave through one another, like a spider web’s threads of blues and grays, cut with black and white. Although the layers of paint are thick, they still manage to create a delicate harmony. Gilbertson, S. (2003). Growing roots: Music therapy in neurosurgical rehabilitation. Music Therapy Today, 4(4).

These concepts have implications for rhythmic perception as well. As part of a study on musical sophistication, Müllensiefen, Gingras, Musil, and Stewart (2014) asked participants from the general population to complete a beat perception task adopted from Iverson and Patel (2008). Participants were presented with several musical excerpts from a variety of genres. A metronomic beep was played over each excerpt. Specifically, the metronomic beep was manipulated to either have the same tempo as the musical excerpt, and therefore considered to be “on the beat,” or was manipulated to be slower or faster in tempo than that of the excerpt, and therefore considered to be “off the beat.” Participants had to indicate whether or not the metronomic beep was “on the beat” or “off the beat.” On average, males were significantly more accurate than females in identifying whether or not the metronomic beep coincided with the actual tempo of each excerpt. Although the reasons for these sex differences remain unknown, these differences may reflect differences in empathizing and systemizing. The systemizers’ greater attention to detail and detail-processing is likely at the root of such differences. Where empathizers are more likely to be processing the emotional content (i.e. the “bigger picture” and global meaning of the psychological attributes in music), systemizers are likely to be more focused more on the surface content (the instrumentation and sonic attributes). And since males tend to score higher on systemizing compared to females, it is no surprise that males performed better on the beat perception task in Müllensiefen et al.’s (2014) study. Accordingly, we predict that individuals with ASC will also perform better on such tasks. Confirming these conclusions is a natural next step for future research.

Charging by the hour, they provide a variety of designs from cute and simple to intricate and complex.

Encouraged by the promising potential of music as an intervention ( Kemper and Danhauer, 2005 ), we pursued our ambitious goal to contribute knowledge that provides help for the affected individuals, both the patients themselves as well as their nearest relatives. Furthermore, we wanted to provide detailed information about each randomized controlled study, and therefore made all our data available, so others may benefit for their potential upcoming research project. The overall outcome of our analysis, with all significant effects considered, produced highly convincing results that music is a potential treatment option, to improve depression symptoms and quality of life across many age groups. We hope that our results provide some support for future concepts. Bruscia, K. (2005). Research Topics and Questions in Music Therapy. In B.

A white cotton diaper with a variety of objects and images attached to, incorporated in, and applied to it surface. All items and photographs have personal significance to the artist.

This piece was done to commemorate an impending birth of a child and sent through the mail to the expectant mother. It is a celebration of life.

In several other paintings, cows enter the picture, most decisively in Cows and Clouds” from 1961, in which two animals seen from awkward perspectives lead into a wonderfully painted, relatively conventional vista. With the 1966 Apple Tree,” all seems resolved. The representational style that Ms. Dodd has since explored comes into focus with paint handling and abbreviation yielding their own abstract forms. This is a great show for painting students and also for students of painting.
