The Canvas Art Of Piet Mondrian

Daniel Cristian Chiriac, born 1972 in Romania, paints oil on canvas. An infant is often exposed to a mother’s speech that is musical in nature. It is possible that the motherly singing allows the mother to relay emotional messages to the infant. Infants also tend to prefer positive speech to neutral speech as well as happy music to negative music. It has also been posited that listening to their mother’s singing may play a role in identity formation. This hypothesis is supported by a study that interviewed adults and asked them to describe musical experiences from their childhood. Findings showed that music was good for developing knowledge of emotions during childhood. Vogiatzoglou, A., Himonides, E., Ockelford, A., & Welch, G. (2011).

Henri Cartier-Bresson (August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004) was a French photographer considered to be the father of modern photojournalism. He was an early adopter of 35 mm format, and the master of candid photography. He helped develop the “street photography” or “life reportage” style that has influenced generations of photographers who followed.

According to many accounts of neurological scans, we process rhythm differently than melodies. Researchers led by Michael Thaut of Colorado State University’s Center for Biomedical Research in Music found pattern, meter and tempo processing tasks utilized right, or bilateral, areas of frontal, cingulate, parietal, prefrontal, temporal and cerebellar cortices,” while tempo processing engaged mechanisms subserving somatosensory and premotor information.” This activation in the motor cortex can produce some intriguing effects. Music with groove promotes corticospinal excitability, which causes that irresistible urge to dance. Additionally, music often causes blood to pump into the muscles in our legs, which many believe is what causes people to tap their feet. Rhythms can also cause changes in heart rate and respiratory patterns and can actually cause these internal cycles to sync up with the music. This points towards one of music’s possible adaptive functions, as a way to create a sense of connectedness between disparate individuals. Ehrenworth, Andrew. Ellsworth Kelly: Monumental Prints.

Body painting for events, photography, markets, festivals, open days, children’s parties, shopping centre openings and fashion shows are a great crowd puller and attention seeker. Pitch is a perceptual property of sounds that allows their ordering on a frequency-related scale , or more commonly, pitch is the quality that makes it possible to judge sounds as “higher” and “lower” in the sense associated with musical melodies. Our results revealed characteristic responses of dementia patients onto the Japanese music, and we expect our result provides an evidence for better music therapy for dementia patients with Japanese culture.

Though, in the west, a lot of works on the production, analysis, synthesis, composition and perception of western music has been reported, systematic investigation in these directions is yet to make its mark in the area of Indian Music. Since music is a temporal art, its proper study necessarily includes a method of capturing, representing and interpreting information about successive moments of time. Bright red, white, blue and green coloured beads contrast with the dark background fabric. The carrying strap is of a natural colour. Lines of coloured beads follow the edges of the bag – red on the outside, white in the middle and green on the inside. The flap has a symmetrical beadwork design on it. Its edge is decorated with evenly placed loops of white beads. The bottom edge has similar loops alternating between light and dark green. The front of the bag has a symmetrical arrangement of lines of red and blue beads.

Nestled in the Hancock Center is the Richard Gray Gallery, which hosts rotating exhibitions by artists primarily working with paint and sculpture. The space is named for its late founder, local art dealer Richard Gray, who is best known for his role in helping the Field Museum secure Sue the T. rex. Notable artists that have had work exhibited at the gallery include Josef Albers, Roy Lichtenstein, Mark Rothko, Robert Rauschenberg and Pablo Picasso.

I still love looking at paintings, sculptures, and other works. I suppose my favorite American artists are Andrew Wyeth and Winslow Homer. I love the clean lines and the subdued palette of Wyeth’s paintings, along with the simple subjects. I also find the light and shadow in his paintings amazing. Wyeth’s works have a powerful emotional quality that’s hard to explain. Hilliard, R.E. (2003).

Vast, abstract paintings inspired by the landscape of Andalucía, where Stoner lives and works. He views his paintings as ‘palimpsests’ – works that he repeatedly returns to, partially destroys and remakes over several years. Which means that you can go around the gallery using the word ‘palimpsest’. Dehcheshmeh, F.S., & Rafiei, H. (2015).

Mumbai-based Manish Nai has had a hectic past few years. When we last met him at the opening of his show at Studio-X (in 2014), he was preparing for the second edition of the Kochi biennale, as well as a solo show at Galerie Karsten Greve in St Moritz, Switzerland. In the past year, he has had two solos—at Chicago’s Kavi Gupta Gallery and the Paris outpost of Galerie Karsten Greve. On 10 December his works were part of an exhibition curated by Girish Shahane, at a collateral event of the ongoing Kochi biennale. Nai’s compression pieces, made with threads of jute softened with glue and compressed into shapes in wooden moulds, are well-known. Around 2011, Nai also began to take photographs of empty billboards, half-torn down, while travelling. Using these images of what he calls ready gestures”, he would merge them digitally. His recent works showcase close-cropped versions of these billboards. Among other Indian studies, Singh and Khess 80 (unpublished dissertation) assessed the efficacy of music therapy as an adjuvant treatment for patients with major depressive disorder. Participants in the music group were compared with a control group that received treatment with psychotropics. Results showed that both the experimental and control groups improved significantly over a period of 4 weeks and there was significantly greater improvement in the music group than the group receiving only psychotropic medications. Another study, Gupta and Gupta, 81 which lacks a clinical setting and randomization, has used Indian music, i.e., listening to one raga, played on the flute (without lyrics) for 30 min a day for 20 days and has found a significant decrease in the scores on depression, state and trait anxiety in study participants compared with the pre-test measurements.

Another domain that has been implicated in the far-transfer effects of musical training is mathematical performance. A meta-analysis of 6 studies examining this relationship found that only 2 studies reported a positive effect (Vaughn 2000). Furthermore, a recent cross-sectional study did not find superior mathematical abilities in musically trained children (Forgeard and others 2008). Thus, there appears to be little evidence demonstrating a transfer of skills between music and mathematics. Gould, Claudia and Ann Bremner. Revolution: Art of the Sixties from Warhol to Beuys.

The purpose of Art News DFW is to foster creativity through visual art nonprofit organizations that support working artists. Promising pharmacological interventions are available for the treatment of dementias, but have a restricted ability to treat many of its features. Non-pharmacological treatments and research into this dimension is relatively ignored. Common approach in dementia treatment is to limit the extent and rate of progression of the pathological processes and slow down the cognitive decline. Music therapy is one of the novel approaches proposed for achieving such targets. Greatest advantage of music therapy is that it creates an alternate mode of communication to patients who have limited ability to speak and understand language. Spretnak builds her argument around broadly recognized artists. The exhibitions cited above, by contrast, focus on figures who have been more marginal to art history. As a result, there has been some debate about their legitimacy as artists.
