The land occupies only the lower third of the image. The rest is overcast sky. The paper surface is smudgy. The lines are fuzzy and there are a few accents of colour. Form: This sculpture deals with mass, solidity. The colour (black) adds to the sense of solidity. The forms are simplified and stylized and the texture is reduced to simplicity – smoothness. The forms are all rounded and smooth. Brüderlin, Markus. The Ornamentalisation of Modernism – Painting in the Eighties and Nineties.” Ornament and Abstraction. Exh. cat.

Crosses are the most prominent aspect of the decoration of the church and were placed there to protect the people, the city and the church. There were three crosses and a tree in brick on the outside of the apse that were concealed under plaster and were never meant to be seen. The frightening effects of the darkness of 536 was certainly one of reasons for them. There were more bad things happening. Justinian’s reign saw disasters in the city including the Black Plague (which wiped out a third of Constantinople’s population in a month) and many terrible earthquakes, even two serious ones during the building in 526 and 527. More earthquakes in 542 and 557 lead to the collapse of the first dome in December 558 mentioned earlier. Besides the huge crosses on the walls and doors hundreds of small ones were inlaid into columns and revetment all over the church. Many of these have been pried out, mutilated or painted over, but they are still there.

Susan Crawford (1941-) Undoubtedly one of the greatest British equestrian artists, Susan Crawford has created an outstanding body of work, including one of the best known equestrian paintings ‘We Three Kings’, which features portrait heads of ‘Desert Orchid, Red Rum and Arkle’. Born in Scotland in 1941, Susan Crawford has enjoyed enormous professional success and acclaim throughout her career. Having seen the original works of Cubist art by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Mondrian was inspired to go to Paris in 1911. While in Paris, his work ‘The Sea’ (1912) clearly showed the influence of Picasso and Braque. Cubism in the French capital led him to create several paintings centering around trees including ‘Flowering Apple Tree’. It was also in Paris that Mondrian started creating an abstract art style of his own. Artist Frank Rossiter Crozier enlisted as a soldier with the Australian Imperial Force in March 1915. He served in the 22nd Battalion in Egypt and later at Gallipoli, where he was approached by journalist C.E.W. Bean to help illustrate the ‘Anzac Book’, a collection of short stories and illustrations for the troops. Bean, who had been given the role of official military historian, was impressed with Crozier’s artistic abilities, and when official war artists were being commissioned by the Australian Government, Bean happily put Crozier’s name forward.

Music is sound that’s organized by people on purpose, to dance to, to tell a story, to make other people feel a certain way, or just to sound pretty or be entertaining. Music is organized on many different levels. Sounds can be arranged into melodies, harmonies, rhythms, textures and phrases. Beats, measures, cadences, and form, all help to keep the music organized and understandable. But the most basic way that music is organized is by arranging the actual sound waves themselves so that the sounds are interesting and pleasant and go well together.

Musical Aptitude refers to a person’s innate ability to acquire skills and knowledge required for musical activity, and may influence the speed at which learning can take place and the level that may be achieved. Study in this area focuses on whether aptitude can be broken into subsets or represented as a single construct, whether aptitude can be measured prior to significant achievement, whether high aptitude can predict achievement, to what extent aptitude is inherited, and what implications questions of aptitude have on educational principles.

McCubbin was a master of painting – some of the images you present, Jodah, take time to just sit and gaze at them, to marvel at the faint detail in the background. “Bush Idyll” is so lovely and would look great on my dining room turned office wall where I spend most of my time.
