    The second half of Leo Steinberg’s Other Criteria focuses on the differences between past artists and modern artists. Steinberg introduces the reader to the idea of having many objects merge into each other, instead of having many distinct objects in the piece with distinct lines and colors. He also brings up the idea of the flatbed picture plane. Instead of composing a piece with the idea of human posture in mind, these “flatbed” pieces are composed more like a worktable or a bulletin board.…

    After graduating high school, playing college basketball was the only thing on my mind. I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but it would transform me into being a totally different person. Although some people think high school has a lot in common with college when actually they are very different. Making it on a major college basketball team is every players dream. The nutrition, training, and time a person puts into basketball varies differently from high school to college…

    Don Anselmo and Mrs.Higgins are similar because they both stand up for what they want. They have in common that they are both being strong in the beginning. Don Anselmo and Mrs. Higgins are different because Don Anselmo stays strong throughout the entire story but at the end Mrs.Higgins does not. I would not say they are more different than similar because they both want something better for the kids in their life.…

    The most interesting short stories that caught my undivided attention were: “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and “Jealous Husband Returns in Form of Parrot” by Robert Olen Butler. These stories were both fascinating and intriguing in the sense that they made me feel like if I was the actual character. You could feel the pain and anguish the characters felt, even the desperation. It got to a point that I felt pity for the protagonist whom in both stories where narrating. Here we can see how someone can feel so desperate that they think the only way out is by taking their lives. Both Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Robert Olen Butler created an incredible form of fiction that makes you question if the scenes in the stories can truly happen in reality.…

    When you love somebody you experience a full range of feelings such as tenderness and anger, calmness and annoyance, jealousy or despair. All these feeling running through your body that you have difficulties controlling them. Everything was great just the other day, and them in moments it all turns a mess. The churning feeling in your stomach makes you want to vomit, but you hold it in as you just want to scream for help. You adrenaline is rushing faster and faster and you just want to end the relationship right there, but with just a pause you remember how happy you are because of your love.

Both can cause you to feel risk and fear which casues your heart to beat even faster.…

    The image conveys the architecture of the ship by describing an elaborate counterpoint of line, volume, and tone. Across the picture’s width is a heavy beam, dividing the composition in two. Against this horizontality are complementary vertical and nearly vertical elements that create trapezoids and triangles. The large mast is the most dominant of these upright diagonals. Its complement is the narrow, crescent-topped pole holding up the gangway, as well as the stanchions leaning to and fro on the gangway, the handrails of the metal staircase, and the many standing figures on both levels. The result is a formal organization that is all at once ponderous and weightless. The effect is of a massive structure suspended within the frame, attached (as it were) where the center beam touches the left and right edges. This beam becomes a kind of a pivoting axis on which the whole scene is liable to swing forward and backward into space, as if to mimic the lapping movements of the vessel.…

Ron Mueck has created a perfect representation of life. Every hair, wrinkle and skin discolouration is placed with upmost care and control. This initial fear is enunciated by humanities fear of the unknown, and the way this hyperrealism makes one second guess what they are…

    Through the careful use of tonal modelling, David illustrates three dimensionality, which is therefore very naturalistic. Tonal modelling is shown through the deep shadowing in forms of the painting. This deep shadowing creates a more believable volumetric space. For example, we get a sense of the figures’ volumetric space through the shadowing in the folds of the figures’ robes; which suggests the outlines and contours of the figures’ bodies.…
