The Unique Nationalism Of Isaac Albeniz, Stephen A. Keyser May 2013

The Unique Nationalism Of Isaac Albeniz, Stephen A. Keyser

MALS Final Projects, 1995-2019

This paper examines the life and times of Isaac Albeniz, the nineteenth century Spanish piano virtuoso and composer. It will address the national debate surrounding the true nature of Spanish culture and describe the cultural, political and musical climate in late nineteenth century Spain. It will demonstrate how the expatriate Albeniz responded to these conditions to produce a remarkable body of music, primarily for the piano, that strove to express the depth of his love for the people, the land and the folk culture of Spain. The paper will finally demonstrate how his oeuvre can be included in the general ...


Toile, Dilenia Garcia May 2013

Toile, Dilenia Garcia

Theses and Dissertations

Toile is a painting series that explores constructions of taste and the semiotics of manufactured fabrics. Through the use of irony, paradox and deconstructions of rhythm, shape, color and form, the paintings are a response to the formal and historical content in the fabric. The idyllic landscape, notions of identity, sexism and liminality are some of the themes considered in the series. The paintings in this exhibition attempt to correct and mediate outdated models of representation through the exploration of painting as a process that is open and malleable.

The Transcendent As Theatre In Roerich's Paintings, Joseph C. Troncale Jan 2013

The Transcendent As Theatre In Roerich's Paintings, Joseph C. Troncale

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

It would not be an exaggeration to say that much of Russian artistic culture in the first two decades of the 20th century was theatricalised. The work that Russian painters did in the theatre was intimately integrated and synthesised with all of the other elements of a production. Many artists of the World of Art Movement were instrumental in revolutionising the theatrical arts in Russia at the invitation and under the direction of Sergei Diaghilev. Following the pioneering steps of Konstantin Korovin, many artists, including Nicholas Roerich, Alexander Benois, Leon Bakst, Mstislav Dobuzhinski and later the avant-garde painters Natalia Goncharova ...


Passages Through The Ordinary: Human Pyramid, Daniel Dean Jan 2013

Passages Through The Ordinary: Human Pyramid, Daniel Dean

Art & Design Faculty Research

A man picks his way across a wooded hillside, a curious reluctance in his step. In a small, two-door hatchback, pale mushrooms sprout from car seats. Drawings of edibles spread across the walls of a windowless room, where wooden furniture beckons to sit, linger, and enjoy the view. A dumpster doubles as a hot tub next to an arrangement of plywood benches and white ceramic tubs, inviting the weary to bathe their feet in salubrious salts. Close by, a set of coal-black bowls nestles into itself, while dust motes dance in a glow of orange light. Ladders and levels, carefully ...


Art In Translation: A Cross-County Collaboration, Lili Un, Rana Rwaished Jan 2013

Art In Translation: A Cross-County Collaboration, Lili Un, Rana Rwaished

Auctus: The Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship

Lili Un, a Painting and Printmaking major at VCU’s Monroe Park Campus in Richmond, collaborated with Rana Rwaished, an Interior Design graduate from VCU in Qatar, to explore the translation of two-dimensional painting into three-dimensional interior design elements. Since they were physically separated, Un and Rwaished maintained a vigorous dialogue through Skype. Once one collaborator finished a project, she would send detailed images to the other, who would then create a new work based on those designs. The paintings were scanned into Adobe Illustrator, and the lines were extracted to form a separate file. Both the qualities of these ...


Depth Of The Surface, Marianne Rogoff Jan 2013

Depth Of The Surface, Marianne Rogoff

Collected Faculty and Staff Scholarship

"Painter Melinda Cootsona chose the title 'A Sense of Place' for her September 2013 show at The Studio Shop long before “Richard Diebenkorn: The Berkeley Years” opened at San Francisco’s DeYoung Museum and art historians launched a series of lectures on his sense of place, though perhaps this is no coincidence. Cootsona expresses a clear love for the work of Diebenkorn and shares his figurative/abstract aesthetic and love of color. The paintings in Cootsona’s newest body of works offer similarly sensuous appreciation for the particular pleasures of California sunlight, but the “sense of place” she depicts may ...


Finding Christ In Giovanni Girolamo Savoldo's Magdalen Paintings, Katherine I. Leavens Jan 2013

Finding Christ In Giovanni Girolamo Savoldo's Magdalen Paintings, Katherine I. Leavens

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This paper examines the techniques Giovanni Girolamo Savoldo utilizes to engage the viewer in his four known variants on the subject of Mary Magdalene. This is achieved through developing the context of an extremely devout Renaissance audience, not only knowledgeable on the subject but also trained to engage with paintings and their subject matter. By examining Savoldo's paintings using John Shearman's concept of the transitive mode, it is possible to understand the way that Savoldo and his predecessors utilize a single figure composition yet through the manipulation of eye contact, body position, and light qualities they are able ...

Muted Resistance, Wesley Harris Ortiz

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

"And what if thou withdraw in silence from the living, and no friend take note of thou departure? All that breathe will share thy destiny." Thanatopsis, William Cullen Bryant. My paintings represent the voice of silenced negative human emotion. The works are expressions of negativity, despondency, confusion, anxiety, subjugation, and the loss of identity. They are examples of internal reactions to external tension. Each piece presents a fragile state of vulnerability and the act of fighting against or succumbing to the overwhelming distress. Together, they represent our human psyche and physical tolerance to the many degrees of agony. The forceful ...
