For diario #2, I watched a show titled El Señor de Los Cielos. The title translates into the Lord of the Skies. The show takes place in México with the characters visiting places such as Colombia and Venezuela. The main character Aurelio Casillas is a drug cartel leader. The entire show is in Spanish. It is interesting to hear different dialects and accents of language of Spanish. Ranging from Colombia to México city, different Spanish speaker in the show speak differently. The words of “vos” is used from the Colombian speakers. I also found it interesting that a lot of the dug cartel leaders, in the show, used names such as El Topo, Tijeras, and Chadorta. I really appreciated the authenticity of the show because Spanish names such as Ximena, Herbeto, and Matilde were used for the charcters. The company who produced the show is Telemundo Studios. The city that Auerlio Casillas, the main drug
Pocho by Jose Antonio Villarreal The 1959 novel, Pocho, by José Antonio Villarreal is an insightful cultural exposition told primarily from the vantage point of Richard Rubio, the coming-of-age son of immigrant Mexican parents who eventually settle in Santa Clara, California, after many seasons of migrant farm work. Although fiction, the story likely mirrors some of the experiences of the author who was born to migrant laborers in Los Angeles in 1924 and was himself a "pocho" - a child of the depression era Mexican-American transition. ("I am a Pocho," he said, "and we speak like this because here in California we make Castilian words out of English words." p 165)
The reason I think Chiapas Paz Mexico mural at City Lights bookstore on Jack Kerouac alley is art because the artist communicates with the viewers by using art theory such as color theory, lines and shapes, and composition on his mural.
In this essay, I will compare and contrast two different sculptures from two different contexts of art. The first being an Olmec Colossal head (monument 1), from the context of “Art of the Americas,” and the second sculpture being ahead from Rafin Kura. The head from Rafin Kura comes from the context of “Art of Africa.” Both sculptures come from two different time periods and parts of the world. They also are both made with natural materials and have their own symbolic meaning.
13) (Sillevis, 2006, p. 70). Fernando Botero aims to transform his subjects into “still” life devoid of character and personality (SULLIVAN, 2000, p. 98). Instead, they are deformed and reshaped to express his artistic views. Fernando Botero’s inspiration for neutral, emotionless paintings comes from his admiration of ancient Egyptian statues and hieroglyphs that never seem to look at the observer and that “contemplate the void.” This feature is clearly pronounced in Fernando’s painting “Figure 4 - Una Familia (1989)” and multiple other portraits. His works also include inanimate objects such as oranges, tables and animal carcasses with the same concept of volume applied to them. (See Figures: “Figure 5 - Still Life with Coffee Pot (1977)Figure 6 - Still Life with Orangeade (1987)Figure 7 - Still Life with the Head of Pork
LA County Museum of Art (LACMA) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or LACMA as it is commonly known, is among the world’s largest art collections in North America, and to be specific enough the most prevalent artwork in the western United States (Compton 165). This massive art museum has a collection of over 100,000 artworks, which extends from the ancient times to present days (Gilbert and Mills 174). These collections, which are mainly from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin-America and America itself, are grouped into several departments within the museums buildings, depending on the region, culture, media, and time period. This paper analyzes the different genres of art and explains the main features that make the Islamic artworks
A Sculpture of Adam by Tullio Lombardo With works in every known medium, from every part of the world, throughout all points in history, exploring the vast collection of the Museum of Modern Art was an overwhelming experience. The objects in the Department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts are an important historical collection, reflecting the development of a number of art forms in Western Europe. The department's holdings covered sculpture in many sizes, woodwork and furniture, ceramics and glass, jewelry, and tapestries. The gallery attracted my appreciation of the realistic qualities of the human body often portrayed in sculpture.
“Las Casas was a Dominican priest who came to the New World a few years after Columbus, spent forty years on Hispaniola and nearby islands, and became the leading advocate in Spain for the rights of the natives”. In 1502, Las Casas moved towards Hispaniola, in the Caribbean. His enthusiasm for the organization was well supported by a Dominican minister and moreover his affectability toward the desolation of the neighborhood inhabitants. In 1509, he denied his domain surrender, released his bondservants, and returned to Rome to take his divine promises. In 1512, he returned to Hispaniola as the chief designated pastor in America and scrutinized ill-treat of the Spanish for Indians and the armed triumph of the New-fangled Biosphere. Emperor
Compare and Contrast Works of Art Bright colors jumping at you asking for attention, images so real viewers can not tell the difference. These are the thoughts that came to my head as I gazed at two works of art by two Mexican artists at MoLAA museum of art . I visited two museums, Bowers Museum of cultural Art in the heart of Southern California and the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach for my report unfortunately I only liked the works in MoLAA and will talk about it through out my paper. I will talk about two Mexican artists Rafael Cauduro and David Alfaro Siqueros that caught my eye, and made me want to learn more of them and their approach to art. Siqueiros caught my eye and interest because according to his biography “no
Our world is full of so many grandiose monuments, eye-catching sculptures, and stunning statues, each having an individual story to tell. Thousands of them have been created however, only a small number of them are actually extraordinary and picture-worthy. This paper will compare and contrast two of those picture-worthy sculptures. Furthermore, I will examine the aspects of each of these sculptures. I will compare and contrast what each of them represents, the differences in texture, their size and their tone.
According to Tirira (2013, La escritura en las redes sociales,para.1) the omission of letters and the abbreviations they are modifications that the use of the social networks has contributed in the written language, is to say they are different ways of communication that have been adopted by the arrival of new technologies to the human being, This type of deformations in the language are not exactly suitable, but they adapt to the new needs.
This essay will compare and contrast the work of two sculptors who use the human form as a basis of their artwork. The first sculpture “Apollo and Daphne” by Gian Lorenzo Bernini was created in 1622 and portrays a Romanian story. Where as “Two Women” by Ron Mueck is a hyper realistic sculpture made by an Australian contemporary artist.
Artworks are those that use natural tools in an aesthetically pleasing way, to express some deep meanings desired by the artist, for which this art is found. These works can be analyzed by looking at a variety of aspects individually and these elements are often called elements They are very useful for criticizing or understanding any artwork as a whole. The materials used by the artist creating the artwork in the documentary "Mystery Masterpiece", the shape of the work is the shape of which it is, including its size or its volumetric perception, and the artwork has three dimensions; the depth as well as the width and height, the three-dimensional form is the basis of sculpture, yet the two-dimensional artwork can achieve the illusion of the
Jenessa Asch Professor Caratzola Art History 202 Term Paper Draft Art History is the study of objects of art in their historical development and stylistic contexts. The history of art, we feel, can sometimes be confused with art criticism. However, Art History is concerned with finding the value of the artistic piece in respect with others in the same category of art or movement, and art criticism is more of an evaluation of art. The art examined best represents the culture during the time period, visions the artist imagined, and history behind an event. It also represents society in a specific area, beliefs the people may have, writing that tells a story, the natural world and environment, conflict between people and areas, and the human body. With these representations, artwork overall represents the life in which we live (d). Each piece has its own genre, design, format and style to it. This makes each piece extremely different, yet pleasing to the eye. They also vary between paintings, sculptures and architecture. These different types also make a variety of artwork to be seen by all people. The art pieces that I chose, Jar, Bottle and Glass by Juan Gris, The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí, and Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh, seemed interesting to me and I believe to best represent the context in which they were created, along with the major artistic movements of the time. I went on to research them more thoroughly to better understand the history behind them,
Cuando era más chica, me enseñaron (o tal vez fue la impresión que me dieron) que las leyes científicas, teorías y factores siempre estaban correctas, que iban a ser invocadas, porque se basaban en observaciones objetivas, hechos concretos y pruebas, y aun que yo sabía que otras teorías científicas en el pasado habían sido refutadas (por ejemplo la que decía que la tierra era plana), nunca se me ocurrió pensar que eso también podría ser cierto ahora. Pero entonces llegó el día en que Plutón dejó de ser considerado un planeta , y después de estudiar por dos años los nueve planetas que componen el sistema solar, me dijeron que ahora habían ocho planetas, ya que el noveno (Plutón) había sido considerado recientemente como un cometa, por lo tanto después de un par de meses de confusión (y algunas preguntas incorrectas en las pruebas, porque me tomo un tiempo asumir que lo que yo pensaba que era un hecho, una verdad absoluta, ya no era valido), finalmente me di cuenta que la ciencia no era infalible, que no era un cien por ciento exacta, y que un una pequeña evidencia podía influir mucho. La ciencia es una parte fundamental de nuestra sociedad, nace de la curiosidad humana y busca dar una explicación a los distintos aspectos del mundo. Por otro lado, la ciencia busca la verdad, aun que, no siempre la encuentra o si es que la encuentra no siempre esta correcta. La tierra no es plana, la vida no aparece espontáneamente de objetos (generación espontanea), Plutón no es un planeta,
