Over all of them, Egypt has captivated our attention over its colossal constructions, its religion, and the impossibility of the timing. Egypt contributes with mystery to the Roman Empire, with glamour through the most famous emperors, Cleopatra, and with fear, through the stories about Moises. Today we can take to life some of their costumes and artifacts thro...
  • Every Good Piece Of Art
    1,805 words
    Critical Study When I began thinking about the critical study I was not sure what movement or particular variety of Art to study. I decided a good starting point would be what types of art interest me and what pieces attract me when visiting an art gallery. The first thing that came to mind was four works that I had seen at the Sensations exhibition. This led me to reflect on my experience of A-level Art as a whole. Particularly on how differently I looked at pieces through my physical and menta...

    Brains, Blood, Sweat, and Tears C. Peters, Memorial Bridge (Oil on Canvas, 1932) R. Crawford, Whitestone Bridge (Oil on Canvas, 1939) "You can accomplish anything with thought and hard work" - Justin Craig-Kuhn To overcome obstacles is human. When something stands in our way, it's "Give me liberty or give me death!" in many cases.

  • Scenes On The Side Of The Cradle
    819 words
    Gallery Write-up 1. There are a number of references to motherhood in Katrin Wiese's work. Although I never felt as though she was shunning motherhood, I do believe she is expressing how the task of being a mother completely engulfs a person. However this is but issue I found in her work that is relates to our class so far. Much of her is a representation of how females struggle with discrimination, racism, and sexism throughout every day life. Some of her work is so direct that even I could gra...

My own personal interpretation of this statement is that it is true - to a certain extent. Patricia Piccinini is an artist of our time - and some of her work...
