Jean Arp, also known as Hans Arp, was a German-French painter, sculptor, and poet. Poor old Thom: The “Painter of Light” Thomas Kinkade, died of an overdose of alcohol and a valium. He was – alas – an alcoholic, burdened by a separation from his wife, financial troubles and the low opinion of his work by critics. And yet he must have signed away his rights as his paintings appear on t-shirts, plates, mugs and what not. Prints sell for nearly $1000 each on the home shopping network. So someone’s making money. Kinkade must have lived high as he was reported to have earned $53 million for his artistic work in the period 1997 to May 2005. Rorimer, Anne. Seventy-Second American Exhibition. Exh. cat.

3D abstract art is a form of abstract art which uses the help of modern technology for the purpose of designing and drawing. From its foundation in the later fourth century, the monastery of Apa Apollo was semi-cenobitic, that is, it was a loosely regulated collection of hermitages under the aegis of Apa Apollo. Apollo, his teaching, and his monastery were well known within Egypt, Palestine, and beyond by the turn of the fifth century, thanks in part to the account of pilgrims from Palestine in the History of the Monks of Egypt. By the sixth century, when the monastery entered its most prosperous phase, with much new building, renovation, decoration, and redecoration, Apollo’s establishment was a double monastery with hundreds of groups, or households, of men and some women. As we know much more about the men of the monastery, I focus on the male viewer. To date, of … Read the rest

Nail art is the most versatile and latest fashion statement today. Rhythm”, by its simplest definition reflects the dynamics of musical time. The origin of the perception of rhythm can be traced back to the heartbeat that a child receives in the womb. The socio-behavioural impact of rhythm is said to be manifested in dance designed to boost our energy levels in order to cope with a fight or flight response. It can be said that perceiving rhythm is the ability to master the otherwise invisible dimension, time.

Effects of active versus passive group music therapy on preadolescents with emotional, learning, and behavioral disorders. Journal of Music Therapy, 35(1), 49-67. Imaging studies have also given us a fairly fine-grained picture of the brain’s responses to music. These results make the most sense when placed in the context of how the ear conveys sounds in general to the brain. Like other sensory systems, the one for hearing is arranged hierarchically, consisting of a string of neural processing stations from the ear to the highest level, the auditory cortex. The processing of sounds, such as musical tones, begins with the inner ear (cochlea), which sorts complex sounds produced by, say, a violin, into their constituent elementary frequencies. The cochlea then transmits this information along separately … Read the rest
