In the nineteenth century, growing industrialization led people to impersonal, greedy, and selfish lives. As a reaction against this situation, romanticism emerged; this artistic movement offered people the place away from the corrupted society. During this era, people favored untamed nature instead of unscrupulous society. Upon a people’s encounter with
Humanity is but a facet of the sublime macrocosm that is the world’s landscapes. In the relationship between man and landscape, nature is perpetually authoritarian. In her free-verse poems, The Hawthorn Hedge, (1945) and Flame-Tree in a Quarry (1949), Judith Wright illustrates the how refusal to engage with this environment is detrimental to one’s sense of self, and the relentless endurance of the Australian landscape. This overwhelming force of nature is mirrored in JMW Turner’s Romantic artwork, Fishermen at Sea (1796). Both Wright and Turner utilise their respective texts to allegorise the unequal relationship between people and the unforgiving landscape.
I’ve been fascinated with with the arts my entire life, I was drawn to the emotion that can be produced without any words.
I am analyzing the form and content of a stylized painting entitled The Palisades by John William Hill. This was found in the collection section of themetmusuem.org which was painted during the pre Raphaelite movement; when artist emphasized meticulous detail in what was observed rather than imagined nature. This artwork shows the aesthetics of nature, depicting a peaceful scenery with spacious green acres during the year of the 1870s. During the late 18th centuries, natural resources weren’t highly industrialized and that in itself shows how nature was essential for all human species. I argue that this painting shows how everything in nature connects and communicates with one another.
Landscape painting was a particularly effective vehicle for allegory because it allowed artists to make fictional subjects appear normal, conditioned, acceptable, or destined. Art was not just about the landscape, it actually allowed the spirit of the painter to come alive in their work. The allegory was for moral and spiritual concerns. The introduction to photography therefore impacted 19th century landscape in a manner that was found to be unacceptable because personal intertwinement of expression and emotion could not come from photography.
The story in my photography may not be a sequential story, but has been an emotional and personal one. My experience with photography has been from both, the side of the viewfinder and the lens. Being the photographer, you get to see items from different angles and perspective and that's something I always try to practice. As a busy college student who juggles many tasks at once, I find it important to always take time to enjoy fresh air and look at the nature around me. When enjoying nature, taking a closer look at the flowers, trees, rivers etc. have always peaked an interest to me. With my photography, I noticed that I'm drawn to landscape photography because I try to capture that delicate, colorful, and peaceful view. The purpose of these
I am constantly writing. I write to reduce anxiety, to plan out my day, to jot down a hilarious joke (probably made by me) that I don’t want to forget later. Slowly, I am penning my own musical and I have written several short stories as well (which will be
Through the lense of any camera bestowed upon me, I find it my duty to capture the beauty in the things around me. While in college I hope to learn the fundamentals of Photography, gain more practice and become a professional photographer. My passion for photography is strong and I’ve been able to get a lot of experience with the camera in and out of school. I've photographed events for my church, I’ve been in the multimedia program at my school for three years as well the school yearbook. I’m currently the Editor in Chief. While traveling with my camera I hope to meet new people which will allow me to learn about new cultures and their traditions. I’ll be able to get a real life experience by eating, speaking and living how other
Nature has long been called the canvas of God. Ink and color crafted by the hand of man are a poor substitute to mirror the beauty of nature but a photograph can do the job much better, if not exactly alike. Andy Lee, a well established creative director, film-maker, photographer, painter and self proclaimed manic doodler has captured the silent beauty of nature on his photograph series titled ‘Patagonia Dreaming 1’.
“Which is it today, Baylee,” my mother said, “an actor or an author?” It was career day at my elementary school, and I was having a hard time deciding which profession to dress up as.
I am proud to be a bisexual African American female with a passion for technology. Yet my journey has not been easy. For my mother, my sexuality was difficult to understand. Due to my strict Jamaican background, she not only misunderstood, but she fought with me. Uncovering my bisexuality was read as a war cry. This led her to try everything in her power to stop or revert this from happening. At one point, not even girls were allowed to sleep over. Her behavior felt dehumanizing and these feelings still resonate with me. I have learned that my mother's acceptance is something I will never have, whole-heartedly, due to her unchanged beliefs.
Graham’s When I Think of Home series and Bellmer’s La Poupée are still life photographs shot from an overhead perspective. When I Think of Home is of garden patches composed of living and decayed flowers, shrubs and different organic materials. Despite its fortuitous impression, Graham’s series are in fact, carefully planned from the beginning of a plant’s life. Parallel to the deliberate arrangement, Bellmer’s La Poupée is a still life photograph, also in the overhead perspective, featuring; pieces of furniture, fabric and multi-coloured mannequin parts.
Art. To me is something undefinable, what I want my art to show you is a piece of myself and a piece of yourself. Something we can all relate to; a memory, a song, a poem, art should make you feel something. Art is a gift, a tool we can use to hide beauty in ordinary places and things. I want to broaden my understanding of design and the world that art is beyond my knowledge and experiences. Because my love for creating burns so bright and deep within me, I am determined to find a career path that will allow me to explore the world of design and art every day. A number of art forms are endless and this seems like a daunting task to find just one path that can express the enjoyment and involvement I want to have with art. Throughout my life I have been endlessly drawing, painting, sculpting and creating--often times I feel almost cursed with such talent to create because the ability seems endless. I have taken a number of art classes exploring my passions as a High School Student and created many different types of works including oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings; etching, embossed, and screen printmaking; charcoal, graphite, and pastel drawings; Sculpting with ceramics and plaster as well as wheel pieces. I find that there is few mediums I have yet to experiment with. I have become accustomed to Acrylic paintings as I have recently started to create paintings and sell them to community members. I participated in a local art fair and it opened my eyes to what art
Before I chose landscape architecture as a start point of my career, all I know about landscape architecture is to design things around people from small to big scale----gardens, parks, streets and urban planning. Later on I realized that I can’t just do the design from some ideas which come from my mind, research, evidence and experience are all essential preparation for design. A design idea cannot be practical without research and research cannot be practiced without design and construction.
Conceptual gardening restores the connection between art and garden design that was lost during the 19th and 20th centuries when plantsmanship began to rise in popularity.5 For conceptualists, the traditional ideal garden, one that is created to provide aesthetic pleasure and ooze charm, represents nothing more than the epitome of artlessness. There is little thought put towards its conception, and it holds little significance with its mixed assortment of flowers and vegetables.6 A conceptual garden, on the other hand, is created with the intent to convey a message and to elicit a response from those who view it. The purpose is not to create a natural refuge. These bold landscapes can act as a social, cultural, or historical commentaries, or even tell a story depending on what the creator wishes to construct. Designers often take inspiration from the history behind the location of the site they are building on
