El Arte De "Lágrimas En La Lluvia", Todd K. Mack 2017 Southern Utah University

El Arte De "Lágrimas En La Lluvia", Todd K. Mack

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

Uno de los elementos destacados de Lágrimas en la lluvia, la excelente novela de ciencia ficción de la madrileña Rosa Montero, es la genial inclusión de obras de arte con fines simbólicos dentro de la obra. Entre estas obras de arte se incluye el famoso cuadro de Johannes Vermeer, Una señora escribiendo una carta con su criada. En este artículo, el dr. Todd Mack muestra cómo este cuadro presagia el principal dilema de la protagonista de la novela. Bruna Husky es una replicante, y por eso sabe exactamente cuánto tiempo vivirá. El conocimiento de su inescapable fin hace imposible que ...

Mybarrio: Emigdio Vasquez And Chicana/O Identity In Orange County, Natalie Lawler, Denise Johnson, Marcus Herse, Jessica Bocinski, Manon Wogahn 2017 Chapman University

Mybarrio: Emigdio Vasquez And Chicana/O Identity In Orange County, Natalie Lawler, Denise Johnson, Marcus Herse, Jessica Bocinski, Manon Wogahn

Exhibition Catalogs

"Emigdio Vasquez created artwork that challenged Orange County’s more prominent narrative of wealthy beachside neighborhoods. He painted the brown bodies and brown histories that defined our earliest communities and economy... Vasquez produced much of the local art history that Orange County should be known for and should protect. It is with this perspective that Chapman University is proud to present the exhibition, My Barrio: Emigdio Vasquez and Chicana/o Identity in Orange County, in conjunction with the Getty Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative. We hope to initiate discourse not only about Vasquez’s prolific career, but also about ...


The Tapestry Of Memory, Kathryn M. Lawson 2017 The University of Western Ontario

The Tapestry Of Memory, Kathryn M. Lawson

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Rationality points to the complete annihilation and end of a life when the body perishes, and yet when a loved one dies we continue to experience that person in a myriad of ways. The focus of this thesis will be a phenomenological exploration of the earthly afterlife of those we have loved and lost. By positing the subject as always intersubjective and as temporal in nature, this thesis will investigate how we continue to create and interact with the deceased upon the earth. In the introduction, this work will be placed in the context of the phenomenological tradition. The first ...

Matter Under Mind, John F. Lause 2017 East Tennessee State Universtiy

Matter Under Mind, John F. Lause

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The artist discusses the work for his Masters of Fine Arts exhibition, Mind under Matter, held at the Tipton Gallery in downtown Johnson City, Tennessee. Exhibition dates are from March 27th through April 5th 2017. ‘Matter under Mind’ explores the balance of control and non-control within the art-making process. This technique creates an automatic dialogue resulting in abstraction guided by the subconscious. The title ‘Matter under Mind’ is a slight play on the phrase ‘mind over matter’ emphasizing how matter/material is manipulated by the mind through the making of artwork, and within the mind’s eye or imagination.

Testimonies Of Violence: Images Of Franciscan Martyrs In The Provinces Of New Spain, Emmanuel Ortega 2017 University of New Mexico - Main Campus

Testimonies Of Violence: Images Of Franciscan Martyrs In The Provinces Of New Spain, Emmanuel Ortega

Art & Art History ETDs

In the middle of the eighteenth century, Franciscan martyr portraits became popular in monastic spaces of the Spanish viceroyalties of central Mexico. To visually construct the meritorious life of these martyrs, artists drew inspiration from hagiographic chronicles that described various Native rebellions, which featured the graphic depiction of the gruesome deaths of friars. The prospect of martyrdom enticed novices to follow in their footsteps in service to God, but also to the Crown, whose presence in the northern territories of New Spain intensified during the period of the Bourbon reforms. In my dissertation I explore this propagandistic approach to martyr ...

The Light, Gauri Manohari NK 2017 Western Michigan University

The Light, Gauri Manohari Nk

The Hilltop Review

The Light — Signifies the simplicity behind the concept of light that many people fail to embrace and admire. This painting shows a terracotta lamp used in India from ancient times. A cotton wick burns with the help of the oil poured into the lamp to give a serene yellow light. The light from the sun, the light from a camp fire, the street lights, the light from a humble study lamp or the light from grand chandeliers; all have the same purpose. It illuminates and it enables us to see the world as it is. This simplicity and unbiased harmony ...


Domestic Disturbance, Tanner J. McGuire 2017 California State University - San Bernardino

Domestic Disturbance, Tanner J. Mcguire

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

My work explores domesticity, the role reversal happening in the family dynamics, the banality of home life, and the common escapism that occurs in parents. Men play a larger role in the home and women play a larger role outside the home blurring the lines of responsibility and changing expectations. This emasculating process often creates a power struggle within the home. These common issues are the fodder for my artistic practice. Domestic pattern, utility, sexual frustration, chaos and contentment all play a part.


Anthropo-Scenes, Ibel M. Sinohuiz 2017 California State University, San Bernardino

Anthropo-Scenes, Ibel M. Sinohuiz

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

ARTIST

My work is a melding of mythology and personal experience. Growing up in the harsh desert of the Coachella Valley, I found refuge in music and art. My desire to become a drummer has leaded me to create a persona called Baby Lamb. Baby Lamb is a symbolic representation, as well as a physical manifestation of this desire and she is slowly evolving, eventually becoming my alter ego. Currently, the artwork that I create is a chapter in the life story of Baby Lamb.

BABY LAMB

Baby Lamb's art shows have included a collection of relics that have ...


Senior Thesis Paper, Paige Brown 2017 Union College - Schenectady, NY

Senior Thesis Paper, Paige Brown

Honors Theses and Student Projects

This series was centered around the idea of paintings being two parts of a whole. The purpose of these pairs is to create a dialogue between the two paintings so that they play off of each other in terms of their individual subject matter. The paintings are organized by an overarching idea that we, as individuals, have many personas that we choose to show the world depending on different situations. Each painting in the pair reflects these opposing personas we reveal to the world around us.


Surrealism: Art Of Subconscious, YiTing Paung 2017 Union College - Schenectady, NY

Surrealism: Art Of Subconscious, Yiting Paung

Honors Theses and Student Projects

Surrealism establishes a bridge between the physical realm and the domain of dreams and illusions. In the surreal world, logic is paradoxical; physical principles and rules are defied, only limited by imagination. The expression is a reflection of the personal experience and psychological state of the creator. During my early works in thesis, I concentrated on studying the works of Hieronymus Bosch, Inka Essenhigh, and Julie Heffernan. In First Thesis Painting , I incorporated the creature in Bosch’s vision of limbo from Limbo and the dynamic form from Romantic Painting created by Essenhigh. I set the combined creature in a ...

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

Possible relationships between northern and southern French shrines are examined in this paper through case studies of the shrines at Chartres and Conques. The materiality of cult statues and votive objects, the body as performative tool, and institutional motivations are considered for their bearing on the shrine as a system.
