Throughout history artists have used various mediums to express their views of the world, some use oils and canvas, some use marble or clay, and others use a camera. Gregory Crewdson uses both a camera and his flawless lighting skills to create beautiful other worldly scenes. In the Article In a lonely place by Gregory Crewdson, Crewdson discusses how his art reflexes the “ideas of beauty, sadness, alienation, and desire.” Crewdson has derived these ideas from a myriad of influences. The most influential of these sources would have to be other artists and Hollywood films. The light work used in almost all of Crewdson’s pieces is very reminiscent of the unnatural light that embodies the great works of the Baroque period of art.

There is a kind of craftsmanship and intelligence at work in the practice of his art. Whether a ship builder or weaver, he applies his practical knowâ€‘how, virtuosity, and talent in fashioning objects that he is creating, and he draws upon general principles which he applies to concrete cases. Moreover, art can help a person develop their critical senses. It could give a person an intuition for forming judgments and trying to decipher what the artwork is trying to portray. Knowledge provided by art is very distinct, as it deals with having a good sense of judgment and interpretation.
Working with materials in my art practice, I developed an interest towards the theories of new materialism and the study of materiality in the art. I always had questions about the material forces and impacts on human mind and bodies. Curiosity about the relationship between physical and non-physical world pushed me to the level in which I started my research on the subject of materiality. The new materialism theories brought clarity to some of my key questions in the study of materiality in my art practice. This includes learning about the relation between the binary oppositions, and the physical and non-physical world.

Hybridity operate... ... middle of paper ... ...rupturing of the work through slicing, perforation and weaving. My art production is an evolving continuum of creative genesis. The ongoing production process highlights the revision of work and its emergent hybrid properties.

The total art work manifests as a continually restructured arrangement of multiple and merged visual regimes within an autonomous but evolving body of production.
Not only was he one of the pioneers of the movement but he also got a reputation for producing posters that were bold, geometric, and having a strong use of typography. Cassandre even invented some new Art Deco style typefaces by manipulating existing ones as well as creating his own. The Art Deco typefaces he designed were: “Bifur” (1929), Acier Noir (1935) and Piegnot (1937). The way in which Cassandre links his typography with the images he uses in his designs is one of his

The repetition of thick and thin lines also very prominent. One other thing that repeats throughout this painting is the use of shapes. He uses a lot of geometric type shapes all over this piece. The repetition greatly unifies this painting.
I then added this to the custom colours list so I could use it on the other pages. I then set all of the text and hyperlink colours to black so that all the text on the page would the same colour. Whilst I was in page properties, I added the page title that would be shown at the top of the browser by typing the title I wanted into the title box.
