Characteristics Of Lowbrow Art
Lowbrow Art Lowbrow art is a unique art movement that emerged in the 1970s in the shady corners
of Los Angeles, California. Lowbrow art has many labels such as underground, Neo–pop, and
Nobrow. Also known as pop surrealism, lowbrow art, was inspired by surf culture, punk music,
underground comix, and most importantly, cartoon and comics. Lowbrow art is a movement for the
millions of people who share a common culture. The movement has steadily grown since the 1970s
and isn't going anywhere soon. The pop culture prevalent in lowbrow art differs through each artist
and is represented through their imagery. In this paper, I am going to elaborate on the characteristics
of lowbrow art. Then, compare and contrast two contemporary lowbrow artist's works, Isabel
Samaras and Kenny Scharf (Esaak). Lowbrow art was born underground. Represented as "street"
culture, lowbrow is focused around retro and rebellious pop culture. Artists that created lowbrow
artwork are typically self taught and don't care about the recognition because often there was very
little. Lowbrow artists tend to have a humorous or sarcastic approach in their art. They don't follow
the rules and they enjoy "poking fun at convention." Lowbrow is a broad term that falls in between
fine art such as museum art and low art such as tattoos. Many artists fall under this category but are
drastically different from each other. Lowbrow art has been branching off into different forms and
styles since its creation. This results

The machine's mimics cognitive functions symbolize advancement of imperial sovereignty in
technology and human's algorithms.
Tintin Wulia's '5 Tonnes of Homes and Other Understories' (2016) and Keg de Souza's 'the earth
affords them no food at all' (2017) are both artworks that are hanging devices suspended from the
ceiling. Wulia's work is composed of layers of compressed cardboard pieces into a box shape. Each
layer of cardboard features a series of drawings symbolizing Wulia's work in Hong Kong. The work
overall adds to the gallery a vague sense of austerity, it exposes the working condition of domestic
labours in a foreign country and the oppression. Keg de Souza is an Australian artist who has
produced a series of work involving food and food culture, one of which is exhibited in the IMA
called the earth them no food at all (2017). The work consists of vacuumed packed food

Digital Art And Its Impact On Contemporary Culture
Digital art is a discipline that brings together all artistic works created with or involving digital
media. This paper aims at addressing the various areas of research associated with the ideas of
digital art, starting from the history, through its various dimensions and demonstrations, working
and functionalities of computer, significant work in the area and ending with the emergence of
various ideas that surrounds this developing discipline.
The history of digital art, which can be more broadly referred to as electronic art, is not only written
whilst affected by the consolidation of the aesthetic and foundation that Stewart Brand claims for
contemporary culture, but also in the very acceptance of digital art by the institutions and curators of
the art world. It is a reality that digital art has remained in a transition for a considerable period of
time and has yet to be established as a proper discipline.
One of the earliest ancestors of digital art is the neo–impressionist painter Seurat. He created a new
technique that has a resemblance to what later will become the pixels. A pixel is the smallest unit of
a computer image. On this point, the critic Donald Kuspit notes the effect Seurat had on
impressionism and especially later neo–impressionism to pointillism and then to inspire pixels.
However, striking spots used by Manet are the primitive prototypes of mathematical sophistication
of pixels. The next crucial aspect in the development of this sensations is stating

  • 5. Digital Art And Its Impact On Contemporary Culture Digital art is a discipline that brings together all artistic works created with or involving digital media. This paper aims at addressing the various areas of research associated with the ideas of digital art, starting from the history, through its various dimensions and demonstrations, working and functionalities of computer, significant work in the area and ending with the emergence of various ideas that surrounds this developing discipline. The history of digital art, which can be more broadly referred to as electronic art, is not only written whilst affected by the consolidation of the aesthetic and foundation that Stewart Brand claims for contemporary culture, but also in the very acceptance of digital art by the institutions and curators of the art world. It is a reality that digital art has remained in a transition for a considerable period of time and has yet to be established as a proper discipline. One of the earliest ancestors of digital art is the neo–impressionist painter Seurat. He created a new technique that has a resemblance to what later will become the pixels. A pixel is the smallest unit of a computer image. On this point, the critic Donald Kuspit notes the effect Seurat had on impressionism and especially later neo–impressionism to pointillism and then to inspire pixels. However, striking spots used by Manet are the primitive prototypes of mathematical sophistication of pixels. The next crucial aspect in the development of this sensations is stating ...

The detrimental effects of the predominance of experiences have flooded over into the production of the arts as well. In opposition to a time when artists' voices were given a great amount of power in shaping the society and when art acquired a decisive political role, the deepening capitalist relations have replaced the role of artists to one that serves a group of people that is more and more exclusive, less and less diverse. Arts and culture on the Bowery now caters to the elites, a class that treats the area as an entertainment destination filled with a series of shopping adventures. In other words, artists and art on the Bowery are suppressed from addressing the politics of inequality and are instead expected to meet the needs of those who buy in the exchange of its survival. If they fail to do so, they are just as likely to be forced out of the area looking for another location to settle. The handful of galleries that managed to survive on the main stretch of the Bowery like Sperone Westwater, Soho Contemporary Art, and Westwood Gallery supports such claim.

  • 9. Expressionism : Door To The River By Jackson Pollock Abstract–Expressionism was a later form of Expressionism. It expressed emotions like Expressionism, but the ideas used color and form by themselves. The trend was popular among larger canvases and new materials. It was an experimentation of abstract designs, techniques, and materials. Paintings might be a paint blob on canvas, or three blue stripes on a green background. Some found it absurd, while others found it inspiring. Jackson Pollock was an American artist who was well known for drip painting. He struggled with alcoholism for most his life and he would take his alcohol–induced inspiration and splatter it onto canvas. No. 5, 1948 was a splatter painting composed of grey, brown, white, and yellow gloss enamels. Most people consider it to be a chaotic birds nest, or a fury of emotions. However, it is whatever your eyes choose to see it as. Willem de Kooning was a Dutch artist known for his works in specifically Abstract–Expressionism. Door to the River is a painting that most might see as the work of a child. It is a blur of white, yellow, pink, and grey streaks. It really doesn't look like a door at all, but Kooning saw it as a door. This demonstrates the point behind Abstract–Expressionism. Postmodernism occurred after modernism. It was a collection of different art forms that rose from trends in modernism. Post–war was known as the beginning of Postmodernism or Avant–garde.

  • 11. Introduction. In Contemporary Science Education, There Introduction In contemporary science education, there are numerous issues presently faced by educators, students and science professionals. These include the misuse of information and communication technology, the depth of disciplinary action, the image of science pedagogy, student attitudes, the science curriculum 'belonging to the past', and the hardships of focusing on science as 'an art', rather than as an objective, logical method of pedagogy. (Appleton, 2013; McFarlane, 2013; Tytler, 2007) This paper will focus on a specific contemporary issue which is causing hardship for several parties involved with the teaching and learning practices. This issue is that of the lack of self–efficacy and motivation found in science educators. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Literature Review The concepts of educator self–efficacy and motivation in science education contexts are ones which have faced a steady decline in recent years. Self–efficacy in an education context is defined as "the judgement of an educator's capabilities to bring about desired outcomes of student engagement and learning, even among those students who may be difficult or unmotivated" (Henson, 2001, p. 4), or as "a teacher's confidence in their science and pedagogical abilities to promote student learning." (Hoy, 2000, p. 344). When partnered with the concept of motivation, it can be identified that science educators' analyses of their own performances and their perceived competencies of themselves in their profession are gradually diminishing, making this a firm contemporary issue in modern science education (Henson, 2001; Pendergast, Garvis & Keogh, 2011). Self–efficacy and motivation are both traits that society require science educators to display on a daily basis. They shape teacher effectiveness and allow educators to be resilient when dealing with problems (Bangs & Frost, 2012). The increasingly low level of the acquirement of these traits has become a rising problem for science education in ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 13. Analysis Of Takashi Murakami : High And Low Eli Brennan 12/1/16 Takashi Murakami: High and Low Post–war Japanese society is a world where High and Low art is blurred together by otaku, such as anime, and social class. However, Takashi Murakami straddles the line. Murakami spills a mix of Nihanga and Otaku into the canvases, plastic toys, handbags, shoes, etc; endorsing his own theory/style named "Superflat". Using strategical subject matter such as popular Japanese comic figures combined with ukiyo–e(traditional Japanese block prints), and addressing these contrasting qualities to outside cultures; Murakami intensifies what Pop Art accomplished, art versus material. On other feelings, one could argue that "Superflat" isn't a unique, Japan–identified style, that "Superflat" is a humiliation to the Contemporary Art world because of its commercialism. Lastly, that is a continuation of the already well developed Pop Art. On the supporting side, Murakami's "Superflat" is a high–energy, cross–culture style that serves as a new way to represent the high and low of art that is considerably unique to Japan. To support this, Murakami's past and present artwork will have to be established chronologically to illustrate how the timeline affects his work. Considered one of the more known names in the contemporary art world, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami 's work is popping with overly saturated colors and otaku, making it immediately recognizable.

  • 15. Hans Use Of Political And Social Themes Hans Haacke has been characterized as among some of the most revolutionary and controversial contemporary and conceptual artists of all time. Haacke's works are generally simply constructed yet exquisitely permeated with depth and importance through his integration of social, political, and environmental issues in his pieces that give them a voice they would otherwise lack. In the following essay, we will seek to understand just how Hans Haacke's use of political and social themes causes his work to resonate with audiences on the scale it has done. When gazing upon the vast expanse of art history, it becomes evident that the greatest and most influentially revolutionary individuals are not those that dabble in the popular and well studied styles of old. Those who are great flee from average and explore uncharted new territories. The individuals that choose to really set themselves apart from the rest of art culture are those who branch out in totally new directions. Those who delve into new ideas and new ways of expressing themselves through mediums and styles few have trodden upon. Hans Haacke has cemented himself in history as one of these influential and revolutionary individuals. His pioneering work of a conceptual nature was unparalleled and unmatched by his competitors at its conception. Hans Haacke was born August 12, 1936 in the little town of Cologne, Germany.

  • 17. Difference Between Art And Contemporary Art Christian Casas Rafael Hernandez LIT3400 The Everyday A typical way of relating social/political issues to art assumes that art represents "the thing" one way or another. But there can be a more interesting perspective, which is looking at the field of art as a place of work. Basically look at what it does not what it shows. Amid all other forms of art, fine art has been associated with post–Fordist ideology. Post–Fordism is a popular system of economically based on production, consumption and has been in most industrialized countries since the late 20th century. Contemporary art is not an out of this world discipline hidden away in some remote building. In fact, it's the opposite because it positions itself in the thick of things. It can function as a brand name without a brand feeding off the bits and pieces of social and political issues. Presently, contemporary art has grown apart from important hubs, which gives the artist a wider range of production and provides various opportunities for showcasing the work. In contrast, this has not always been the case. Artist in novels about portraitures are depicted as servants due to the flow of cash. Art should be functioning on its own without the need of an institutional backing in order to create separation between the artist and their work as well as what the work can "do".

By maintaining a calmer view of the present, students are able to improve their study habits, planning, and organizational skills" (p. 20). During my elementary years, I wish I would have been taught more of these skills to help with the academic struggles I experienced. When I was younger, I remember feeling performance anxiety before I had to take an exam in science. Although I enjoyed science class and studied, I felt overwhelmed, nervous, and my mind was going in a million different directs. I also notice in my field experience that many of my students tense up or sigh when they are told they are about to take an exam. There is an uneasiness that affected students in the classroom and added pressure. The research I gathered supported the positive effects mindfulness has on a student's concentration, memory, and critical thinking skills. As a teacher, I would utilize this method before an exam by modeling to my students how to focus on their breath while moving and stretching their body. I would have students close their eyes and say positive words of affirmation about themselves in the present moment.

The Gallery Of Modern Art The Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) is honoured to present an exhibition titled 'Image and Text: A Feminist Narrative', with which it will be opening its door to the public on the 12th September and closing on the 15th October. When image and text are integrated with one another in the creation of contemporary art, artists are able to produce powerful and extremely effective messages of their choice. However, just because the image and text are displayed together, does not mean they relate to each other, as the text can either support the image, or contradict the image in order to demonstrate the transparency of either or both elements (Williams and Simpson, 1994).

Throughout the centuries, art has evolved to several forms among which are sculpting, painting, and even poetry.

There are examples of cave paintings all over the world–in India, France, Spain, Portugal, China, Australia, etc. In Western cultures oil painting and watercolor painting have rich and complex traditions in style and subject matter. In the East, ink and color ink historically predominated the choice of media with equally rich and complex traditions. Modern and Contemporary Art has moved away from the historic value of craft and documentation in favour of concept; this led some to say in the 1960s that painting, as a serious art form, is dead. This has not deterred the majority of living painters from continuing to practice painting either as whole or part of their work. The vitality and versatility of painting in the 21st century belies the premature declarations of its demise. In an epoch characterized by the idea of pluralism, there is no consensus as to a representative style of the age.

It looses trust in the media and public communication, embracing simulacrum as a hyper–reality that was only long–ago based on some sort of truth. Most importantly, Postmodernism rejects the Modernist idea of high art as normative and dominant. Instead, it merges the concept of "low" and "high" art, effectively canceling them both. Where Modernism saw a work of art as a finished product, signed by the artist and authenticated by the art market, Postmodernism sees art as a recycling of culture, authenticated by whatever audience that may be. Where Modern art is a separate dichotomy of contrasting themes (organic/nonorganic, realist/abstract), Postmodern art mixes all available ideas into a sensational pastiche. Finally Modernism clearly divided normity versus sexual difference and pornography. Postmodernism embraces whatever ideas have an audience, and mixes polymorphous sexuality and pornography with mainstream media.

It was the ghost which created the fire inside Hamlet, the desire for revenge but also the need for revenge as a duty, to his "murdered" father. The ghost, however, has been the subject of much debate amongst critics and readers of Hamlet, with the controversy surrounding whether the ghost is "real" as a physical element of the play, or whether it exists simply in the mind of Hamlet. The play opens with Horatio and various watchmen alarmed that they have seen a ghostly presence, although we don't know for sure that they have actually seen the purported ghost of the former King. This could indicate that what they saw wasn't actually a ghost, and further evidence to suggest this could be found in the scene in which Hamlet sees the ghost but Gertrude cannot see him (Act III, Scene IV). Some critics, such as Jan Pick, argue that the appearance of the ghost as an actual element of the play is simply to encourage the audience to accept Hamlet as a rational human being rather than an insane character; the inclusion of the ghost as somebody the audience (if not the other characters) can see lends an air of authenticity to the ghost scenes, authenticity which can only exist to a modern audience in the assumption that Hamlet actually is insane, and imagining the ghost.

The reworking and regeneration of already existing cultural works through the processes of borrowing, stealing, recycling, appropriating and collaging has become a dominant creative strategy in contemporary art and design, particularly fortified by Postmodernity. Martino Gamper, sister duo Soda_Jerk and Glenn Brown are significant artists in this 'remix culture' that redefine the way the world is perceived through the reproduction and recyclability of their works and the works of others. Remix culture, or 'read–write culture' , lets people generate "art as readily as they consume it" . In Lawrence Lessig's book Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy, he argues that the contemporary generation's form of 'literacy' is technologically–based . In this contemporary society, technology plays a significant role in the appropriation and 'hacking' of art, music and film making it difficult to distinguish what is piracy and what is creative. Italian furniture designer, Martino Gamper, takes the creative approach by recycling and appropriating in his 2006 work 100 Chairs in 100 Days. By reconfiguring and remixing the design of 100 abandoned, second– hand chairs, Gamper explores the collaboration between styles and structural elements giving new life and meaning to one chair a day.

Before the narration of this story, Abram is portrayed as an individual with several positive attributes including righteousness and humility. However, the story highlights several troubling concerns and questions regarding Abram's character, beliefs, and behaviors in relation to God and Sarai. These troubling questions and concerns have become the subject of interest and study throughout the ages.

Among other contemporary "neo" styles are the cool "neo–geo" abstractions of Peter Halley and others, the stark structures of neoconceptualism, the slick neopop of such artists as Jeff Koons, and the landscape revival represented by Diane Burko and April Gornik, among others. Many new artists have simultaneously invoked and challenged art history, rejecting the heroic stature of the singular work of art and the single (usually white male) artist and invoking the ubiquity of mechanically produced reproductions by employing sophisticated "quotations" or "appropriations" from prior works. This can be found, for example, in Cindy Sherman's photographic recreations of paintings, in the multiple quotations of historic images of David Salle's paintings, in the postmodern takes on Barnett Newman by Philip Taaffe and on Manet by Yasumasa Morimura, and in the nearly identical representations of famous images such as Picasso's icon of modernism Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Mike Bidlo.
