Studio Still Life Number 4 was created in 2006. The painting is located near the entrance of the exhibit which has sliding glass doors. When you go through the sliding glass doors the painting is to the left. This is a large room on the second floor of Evansville Museum. This painting is the third work from the far corner and is next to a part of the wall that sticks out farther than the rest. The lighting in the room around the work helps to add to the effect of the painting and of the lighting that is shown in the work. The way that the lights are angled they give the illusion that they could be to be the ones casting the shadows that are in the work. The work is larger than most of those around it. This painting is hung in a thin silver frame. The frame seems to have two parts, the inner part is a graphite color and looks as if it could be slate. The next part is the silver part that was mentioned before, this part lays over part of the first part creating a layered affect (Evansville

    This painting was painted around the 1550’s and it was in a chapel. The “Renaissance” is very different from the Medieval art because it has more depth and more details to the painting. In the painting the way the people are drawn looks so real and very detailed. The people have muscles and ABS, the shadow that it makes while they are falling down to the underworld. You can tell the difference where the jaw line starts and how the neck and chin is separated to each other. You can also see skin the sensuality that the Renaissance painting has and not the Middle Ages painting didn’t…

    The symbols:He has used a variety of line, round and curvy in some areas but straight in others. I think he has done this to make the place seem more realistic because if he had just used straight or curvy lines then it wouldn't seem realistic. In the painting there are 9 or more nudes, some on the rug, the sculptures, and the person on the bed, the sketches and a few more. This might show that this is one of the main topics he paints. The sculpture in the picture symbolises that Brett didn't just do paintings but also drew sketches, as shown in the painting from the sketch book leaning on the chair, and sculptures from the 2 sculptures in the painting. In the artwork the colours used are bright, vibrant colours like dark blue, yellow, red, white and yellow. The dark blue and the yellow might symbolise the beach-blue for water and yellow for sand. The yellow could also stand for happiness. The red could mean love or romance and because there is a female figure on the bed maybe it is directed at her. In this case the white is representing the light coming from the roof light. It is also used for the sketch books paper, the scrolls on the wall and the paper he is painting on. The hanging scrolls are painted on the back wall. There is a contrast between the white scrolls and the blue wall. This make the scrolls stand out more. The scrolls are a symbol of Japanese and Chinese art. The windows in the painting overlook Sydney harbour and we know this because Sydney Harbour Bridge is noticeable. If he hadn't used the harbour bridge then we wouldn't have know where he was painting or that he was painting at his apartment. The chair in the painting is also the chair from his studio. This also symbolises that he is painting in his apartment. The chair is stationed by its self on the rug. Because it is in the middle of the room this might symbolise its importance and that its just not any ordinary chair.…

    The lines in this work of art are of a large variety. On the right side of the painting a lot of the objects are horizontal. The woman though is sitting up vertically, along with the flame. There are a few diagonal lines also, for example; the position of the woman’s head, one of her legs, and her arm resting on the skull. Everything in this painting is realistic and the shapes are organic. The texture in this painting is two-dimensional.

    When taking a trip to the Norton Museum of Art I chose a one dimensioned painting called Adam that was located on the first floor. The artist is Nicholas Carone and was painted in 1956. To the left of the painting, Adam, was another painting named Personage which was painted by Robert Mothewell in 1943. Personage is an abstract oil painting on canvas with multiple different colors. To the right of Adam was a sculpture called Sea Quarry and was created by Theodore Roszak. The sculpture was not an obvious choice that it was a sea animal at first. I had to stand there for a minute and really look at the sculpture to being to see what it was really intended for the sculpture to be. Returning to my original choice, Adam by Nicholas Carone, it is also an oil painting done on canvas. Carone first started with a plane black picture and continued to manipulate it with white paint color and other lines using different thick and thin brushes. The picture was made to represent and recreate light and shadow but is opaque. It uses several different elements of art including color, value, line, shape, and space. “Adam”s composition is curved lines and is known as an Abstract Expressionism type of art.…

    Understanding these amazing art forms can be comprehended by first taking a look on how all forms of art was greatly influenced by Early Chinese Civilization. There are many connections between culture, religion, and spiritual beliefs. Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism were religions that greatly affected Chinese artist. These religions and philosophies represented social responsibility, responsibility towards nature, practical and mystical relations, along with healthy life balance. (Benton & DiYanni, 2008) In addition to religion the admiration of nature played a very special part in art whether it is sculptures, calligraphy scrolls, or architecture. The wide array of art forms can be traced back to the Chinese culture. In the first preview you will notice a bronze horse; this artwork was created during the Han Dynasty.

The breed of horses that were available to the Chinese were considered “flying horses” due to their speed. Many emperors along with citizens valued animals and nature because of their spiritual beliefs. Chinese men also valued the horse understanding that in time or war…
