Both involve ideas, theories and hypotheses that are tested in places where mind and hand come together, the lab and the studio.

Always fascinated with the “peculiar light of the veiled sun” of his native Belgium, Bekaert captures it in his paintings, transforming his subjects, investing them with significance far beyond their simplicity. Similarly, he uses the subdued mist to create enchanting paintings which are classically graceful and suffused with mystique, as well as a tough, artistic integrity. Bekaert is the recipient of the 1976 West Flanders Painting Award, as well as the 1967 Knokke Award. Contemporary American Sculpture: Selection 2. Exh. cat. New York: Whitney Museum of American Art, 1969. Foreword by John I. H. Baur. Not all scholars consider animal song to be conceptually analogous to human music. For instance, Marc Hauser and John McDermott reject this analogy, contrasting the specific functional role of animal song in territorial defense and mate attraction with human music, which they consider to be characteristically produced for pure enjoyment” (although recent evidence suggests that animal song does sometimes occur in other behavioral contexts, and many human musical behaviors can be understood in functional terms). Other researchers do not see fundamental differences between human music and animal song. To circumvent issues related to the use of the word ‘music’ with non-human animals, Martinelli therefore defined zoomusicology as the study of the aesthetic use of sound communication among animals.” Although the use of the word ‘aesthetics’ in relation to non-human animals may itself be controversial, it has a weighty precedent — none other than Darwin attributed aesthetic preferences to birds. Earlier attempts at using musicological approaches to analyze animal song sometimes resulted in improbably anthropomorphic attributions, such as birds being credited with singing major, minor, or pentatonic scales. However, the use of modern acoustical and statistical analytical methods ensures that researchers are now able to describe animal songs more objectively.

Just as rhythm can affect motor function and the initiation of movement, a familiar tune or melody can reawaken in persons with dementia, or with traumatic brain injury, seemingly lost memories and feelings. We are so much the sum of our experiences and memories that we cannot help associating each new experience with something that came before it. Imagine how the world must seem to someone with no memory link from past to present. But sometimes music can provide a bridge.

We had to agree on several issues regarding dimensions, size, frame-or-not-to-frame, completion dates, pricing and incremental payment, shipping and insurance. We decided the dimensions of each paintings would be 32″ high and 44″ wide. The paintings would be oil and mixed-media on canvas. The canvases would be shipped to my office, rolled into a tube.

Something is draped over the bicycle in each view. The bicycle is old; it has a twisted wheel.

Mixing your poster paint with PVA is an excellent way to thicken it. It also has the added advantage of making colours much stronger and glossier. You will be able to make the most of that lovely creamy silky paint. Washing up liquid may sound like a bizarre choice, but when added to poster paint it adds a lustrous shiny finish. You can even water the paint down with a mixture of water and washing up liquid to blow incredible paint bubbles on to the surface of your paper to get some dreamy backgrounds going as well as making an artistic, joyful mess. How to Paint Like Jackson Pollack. Jackson Pollack (1912-1956) was an abstract artist master. His aggressive, innovative technique led to wonderful, energetic paintings.

When contemporary artists tackle Christian subjects today, they often do so in an iconoclastic, ironic, disrespectful or subversive fashion. Think of the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan’s satirical sculpture La Nona Ora (1999), in which Pope John Paul II lies on a red carpet, crushed by a meteorite that has just plummeted from the heavens; or Piss Christ (1987), a photograph by the American artist Andres Serrano, in which a small plastic crucifix is submerged in a glass of urine. Abraham Pietersz Van Kalraat (1642-1722) (also known as Van Calraet) was a Dutch Golden Age Painter who started his career as an artist painting fruit, but is now also known for his excellent paintings of horses in landscapes.
