Art


Art is a category that refers to the visual arts, which cover the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media. Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature, and other media such as interactive media are included in a broader definition of art or the arts. Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences, but in modern usage the fine arts, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, are distinguished from acquired skills in general, and the decorative or applied arts.

Ades Web Magazine: Australia

By: Manuel Balossi

A continent or just an island? Maybe both! Deserts, mountains, tropical rainforests, a few fertile plains: undoubtedly there are a lot of contrasts in this country, whose cities and population are concentrated along eastern and south-eastern coasts. Nonetheless its heart is what fascinates the most: red mountains and red sand are what the world knows better of Australia

Heterochronia and Vanishing Viewpoints : Art Chronicles and Essays...

By: Dr. Marcelo Guimaraes Lima

Art chronicles and essays on the visual arts in the Middle East and elsewhere: art theory, art criticism and the history of art.

The surrealist image attempts to short-circuit the distinction between the substance and the form of representation by playing upon (by both extending and contracting) the distance between the sign (or the icon as subsumed within a given significant system) and its supposed, intended or anticipated meaning. The written word as imagined in the painting of Miro is language itself finally revealed in its essential nature, namely, as a specific form of the imaginary. ...

By: Raúl Rodríguez del Río

Somos el poema llevado a la repulsión. La repulsión misma nos favorece y hace virtud de repulsa, como una sepultura beneficia la delicadeza del clímax, sin otra consecuencia que la eternidad y la frialdad.

Lo mejor en poesía es poco y bien que mucho y bien, incluso es preferible lo ínfimo de la perfección y la sangre.

何謂古典自由詩派? 就新詩於歌詞的內容與形式關係的看法,談談作者的一些看法: 1)儘管古今中外,文學革命都從「文的形式」解放做起。新文學也是從語言、文字、文體的解放做起,然而自五四新文化運動以來,舊有的古典文學精華逐漸不被世人所注重,文的形式雖然得到解放,然而經不起歷史長河的考驗,劣質的文學語言和網路文學一度衝擊傳統文學,一度使得糟粕文學佔據文學世界的主流,古典自由詩派既兼顧新文學的形式解放,又汲取古典文學中的精華,使二者有機的融合在一起,誕生出了獨特的文體,既所謂的「古典自由派」。 2)古典自由詩派一直沿襲「詩體的大解放」。須「不拘格律,不拘平仄,不拘長短,有甚麼題目,做甚麼詩;詩該怎樣做,就怎樣做。」以語言的「自然的音節」為原則。 3)形式上的束縛使精神不能自由發展,內容不能充份表現。古典自由詩派解除了形式的束縛,將細密的觀察、曲折的理想、細膩的感情用微妙的文字表達出來,同時引經據典吸納古典文學元素、結合網路上流行文化,進行新的創作,包括歌曲的重新填詞,詩歌的創作等等。 古典自由詩派不追求押韻、平仄、對偶等...
