Rhythm: A regular graduated rhythm provided by the repeated units, the repetition of the geometric shapes, and the placement of the limbs. Texture: A contrast between rough and … Read the rest

Coinciding with interactionist theories which argue that people seek out environments that are a reflection of the self, Joni Mitchell said in an interview: “The trick is if you listen to that music and you see me, you’re not getting anything out of it. If you listen to that music and you see yourself, it will probably make you cry and you’ll learn something about yourself and now you’re getting something out of it.” 5 … Read the rest

Henri Laurens was a French sculptor and Illustrator, born in Paris, on February 18, 1885, in a worker’s family. Among clothing motifs, I focus on a particular type of mantle, the himation, a large rectangular piece of cloth, typically worn as an outer garment over the tunic from classical antiquity. Similar arguments for the transfer of authority have been made for another kind of mantle, the smaller skin or fleece melote, which is perhaps best known as the miraculous mantle handed down by Elijah to Elisha in the moment before the former’s ascension to heaven, which replaced Elisha’s 2 Kings 2:8 for the himation of­­ Elisha and 2 Kings 2:13 and following for the melote of Elijah. N. K. Rollason, Gifts of Clothing in Late Antique Literature (Abingdon, 2016), 129-69, addresses these scriptural passages and other late antique texts using the terms melote, pallium, and, to a lesser extent, himation, … Read the rest

When selecting music, we can choose to play music that is synchronous to our current mood state or energy level, or we can choose music to shift our mood or energy level (DeNora, 2000). For example, if someone is feeling despondent they may choose to play stimulative music to energise them for exercise or music that they associate with positive memories. Conversely, we may choose to play calming, predictable, relaxing music to help release tension and stress after a long day at work. However, there are times when we feel low in energy and mood and want to … Read the rest

Abstract Expressionism was born from the common experience of artists living in 1940s New York.
