Listening to music can also help people with Alzheimer’s recall seemingly lost memories and even help maintain some mental abilities. Jackson Pollock was born in Cody, Wyoming in nineteen twelve. He grew up in the states of Arizona and California. Pollock later said that the wide-open land of these western areas greatly influenced his expansive artwork. In nineteen thirty he moved east to New York City where he studied at the Art Students League. There, Pollock spent a few years studying with the artist Thomas Hart Benton who painted images of every day American life. Pollock’s early works are similar to his teacher’s kind of painting. However, Pollock slowly left this traditional art education behind. de Chassey, Éric. Kelly et Matisse – Une Filiation Inavouée.” Les Cahiers du Musée National d’Art Moderne 49 (Autumn 1994): 40-57.

In terms of the neural substrates underlying music- and language-syntactic processing, neuroimaging studies have shown overlapping brain regions, such as the bilateral inferior frontal gyrus (e.g., Broca’s area; Janata et al., 2002; Koelsch et al., 2002c; Kunert et al., 2015; Maess et al., 2001; Tillmann et al., 2006) and superior temporal gyrus (Koelsch et al., 2002c; Sammler et al., 2013). However, it has been noted that processes associated with the same brain region are not necessarily shared, given the density of neurons within any given area (Peretz et al., 2015). The incomplete photographic record and the lack of ground plans are frustrating for considerations of spatial memory. These were, however, typically uncomplicated spaces: rectangular rooms with a central niche or small apse in the eastern wall. Most likely some of the apostles and monks-as-apostles on the eastern wall of Chapel LVI would have been in a niche, as was conventional at the monastery. Compare, for example, a niche composition of apostles with monks-as-apostles (again, as indicated by their dress as well as their grouping with apostles) in the apse of the eastern wall of Room 20, as seen in an excavation photograph (fig. 3), and a detail of the niche now in the Coptic Museum in Cairo (fig. 4), with the better-known apse painting from Room 6, representing monks-as-apostles in a visionary composition with Eucharistic associations (figs. 5a-e).

Through “Campbell’s Soup Cans,” Andy Warhol paved a new way in presenting something interesting in everyday mundane objects. He always challenged the traditional myths of art and created this masterpiece, though devoid of any emotions, but still connected to the most of the people. He even entered the Time Magazine in 1962, to promote ‘Pop Art’ revolution, where art was depicted through ordinary objects and it was not necessary for it to be creative. Mastnak, W. (2016).

Lane Galleries, Beyond the Loom: Fiber as Sculpture highlights pioneering artists who radically redefined textiles as modern art in the 1960s and 1970s: Anni Albers, Olga de Amaral, Ruth Asawa, Sheila Hicks, Kay Sekimachi and Lenore Tawney. Co-opting a medium traditionally associated with women’s work and domesticity, they boldly broke free from the constraints of the loom to create large-scale, sculptural weavings that engaged with contemporary art movements such as Minimalism. A second rotation in the same space, Subversive Threads, will open late spring 2020, focusing on contemporary artists who have used textiles to challenge notions of identity, gender and politics.

The sand in the lower one third of the image contrasts sharply with the larger rocks in the upper two thirds. The white paper accentuates the division line, yet unifies the two. Wet paper takes the shape of the object it covers, temporarily assuming a three dimensional quality it normally doesn’t have. The wetness of the paper creates a clinging quality which meld it to the rocks it covers. It also gives it a translucency which accentuates its fragility in comparison with the rocks. This House Sculpture is one of three bronze relief sculptures created by American pop artist Jim Dine in 1983.

Ramkinkar Baij, one of the most seminal artists of modern India, was an iconic sculptor, painter and graphic artist. Ramkinkar Baij (1906-1980) was born in Bankura, West Bengal, into a family of little economic and social standing and grew by his sheer determination into one of the most distinguished early modernists of Indian art. In 1925, he made his way to Kala Bhavana, the art school at Santiniketan and was under the guidance of Nandalal Bose. Encouraged by the liberating, intellectual environment of Santiniketan, his artistic skills and intellectual horizons blossomed, thus acquiring greater depth and complexity. Soon after completing his studies at Kala Bhavana he became a faculty member, and along with Nandalal Bose and Benodebehari Mukherjee played a pivotal role in making Santiniketan one of the most important centres for modern art in pre-Independent India. Ramkinkar’smonumental sculptures are established landmarks in public art. One of the earliest modernists in Indian art, he assimilated the idioms of the European modern visual language and yet was rooted in his own Indian ethos. He experimented restlessly with forms, moving freely from figurative to abstract and back to figurative, his themes were steeped in a deep sense of humanism and an instinctive understanding of the symbiotic relationship between man and nature. Both in his paintings and sculptures, he pushed the limits of experimentation and ventured into the use of new materials. For instance, his use of unconventional material, for the time, such as cement concrete for his monumental public sculptures set a new precedent for art practices. The use of cement, laterite and mortar to model the figures, and the use of a personal style in which modern western and Indian pre-classical sculptural values were brought together was equally radical.

The decade of ’35-’45 was a fraught period on the world stage as well as on the brightening art stage of New York, where debates about abstraction and figuration were famously waged in downtown bars and uptown museums. Reinhardt, who studied at the National Academy of Design and the American Artists’ School and worked in the easel division of the Federal Arts Project after his 1935 graduation from Columbia University, was firmly embedded in this milieu. He was acutely aware of the scene and its players, acutely loyal to mentors (such as Carl Holty, Francis Criss, and Burgoyne Diller)¹ increasingly overshadowed by a new influx of European émigrés, and acutely impatient to get to work. He had an active, hungry eye and even in those early years was on the defensive about its focused, discerning gaze. He had already decided that art’s apotheosis would be abstract painting, which he called the central fact” of the twentieth century.² In 1943, he declared, It is more difficult to write or talk about abstract painting than about any other painting because the content is not in a subject matter or story, but in the actual painting activity.”³ Reinhardt here locates painting’s heart in the disciplined procedure of its making and, by implication, in a parallel viewing experience—both activities that require sustained and careful work. Her long list of accolades includes her famous disappearing model body painting of 2000 where it is extremely hard to identify the model in the picture.

For this exhibition, Fullerton presents Groupie: painted from a picture of a pre-teen model affecting an aloof adult, Fullerton titles the work for a term that, since the 1960s, has evolved from a descriptor of sexual agency to that of a power imbalance. On view by Katharina Wulff are two sparsely occupied and delicately rendered scenes, exemplifying the artist’s engagement with, and updates of, German romanticism—transported to the artist’s adopted home of Morocco. Each strangely halting in their articulation, these representational works become fantastic by way of what is omitted. Giangiacomo Rossetti’s Capriccio sopra la lontananza del suo fratello dilettissimo (2019)—translates to Capriccio on the departure of a beloved brother, and originates from a seminal composition by J.S. Bach. Bach’s piece was written as his brother left for Sweden, Rossetti’s work was occasioned by his own departure from Milan. The work is sourced from his brother’s Instagram, and framed with the oroboro – a snake eating its own tail.

Grid method – Create a grid using horizontal and vertical lines on your artwork and the same on the wall and transfer each box onto the respective box on the wall. For e.g. – Divide the 1ftx1ft artwork into 10 columns and 10 rows which gives you 100 unique boxes. Divide the 10ftx10ft wall also into 10 columns and 10 rows. copy the artwork on each box on the paper to the corresponding box on the wall. Once all the boxes are done, you’ll have the blown up version of your paper artwork on the wall. You can use as many rows, columns and boxes as you need. Sometimes, 4 is enough and sometimes, more than 10 might be needed for really big murals. An Exhibition of New Work by Ellsworth Kelly. Exh. cat. New York: Sidney Janis Gallery, 1967.

Since mankind, women have been decorating themselves with various different ornaments, dresses or painting their nails with henna or juices of barks of trees. With the passage of time and changing scenario of fashion more and more forms of nail decorations came into limelight and since then women are enjoying experimenting their nails. It’s truly been said that beautiful and well-groomed nails reflect one’s inner personality and mood. People have now become possessive and concern about their nail appearance. The study of empathy has implications for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum conditions (ASC), who traditionally have lower levels of cognitive empathy (also known as “theory of mind” or “mentalizing”) than the general population (Baron-Cohen, 1995). Individuals with ASC have unusual perceptual abilities and affective reactions to music. For example, those with ASC have enhanced accuracy in pitch processing (Heaton, 2003, 2005) and pitch discrimination (Bonnel et al., 2003, 2010). However, adolescents with ASC are less accurate at detecting emotional expressivity in musical performance (Bhatara et al., 2010). Although research has suggested that individuals with ASC do not have deficits in emotional categorization (Quintin, Bhatara, Poissant, Fombonne, & Levitin, 2011), reports of emotional reactivity to music by individuals with ASC are different compared to the general population (Allen, Hill, & Heaton, 2009). Importantly, there is clear evidence that both short (Whipple, 2004; Kaplan & Steele 2005) and long-term (Boso, Emanuele, Minazzi, Abbamonte, & Politi, 2007) music therapy interventions improve a range of behaviors in individuals with autism. Specifically, these interventions can reduce impairments in communication and motor skills (Accordino, Comer, & Heller, 2007).
