Art of sleeping

The success of Art of sleeping is yet to reach its peak but has significantly increased in the past year with the success of their new EP ‘Like A Thief’. Art Of Sleeping were recently signed with Dew Process and exploded into high rotation on Triple J with ‘Empty Hands’, their immensely personal and cinematic single. This emotive brand of indie-rock has been the trend du jour of 2012 and probably has been since the rise of Boy & Bear, Matt Corby and The Medics; so Art Of Sleeping hit at exactly the right time.

The bands new EP reached Top 100 ARIA Chart debut and an invitation to partake in an Official ARIA Showcase next month. This is the first release to chart for Brisbane group. Prior to the release of Like A Thief, the band had released several singles that picked up significant radio play on Triple J. And also recently completed a national tour called Above the water prior to the EP’s release which included special guest tigertown.

They also went on tour with Paper Kites as a supporting act, performed at Big Sound 2012 and Fat As Butter 2012. National touring came with these hits, more exposure, more support. Still, success took the band completely by surprise. Since they were notified that ‘Empty Hands’ was added to triple j, the band haven’t really stopped. The Band will also be going on its Like a thief tour down the east coast of Australia starting in there home town of Brisbane at The Zoo. Sydney will be the next in line, where Art of Sleeping have been welcomed to take part in an ‘Official ARIA Showcase’. Finally Art of Sleeping will reach Melbourne, a town that has embraced the Brisbaner’s like their own in recent times, playing Northcote Social Club. This tour will have a major positive impact on the success of the band as its there first headlining tour as signed artists. The band were signed to Dew Process in September this year and the label has gone straight to work in trying to create more success for the band with the EP and the upcoming tour. Art of Sleeping now join Dew Process’ Firm of esteemed artists, sitting in the good company of Sarah Blasko, Mumford & Sons, Bernard Fanning, Last Dinosaurs, The Panics, The Grates and The Hives just to name a few.

They have a reasonable online fan base with Facebook page fans at 11 000, 570 on twitter and the song colourblind has received 430 000 views on youtube which shows that they have a strong fan base but still needs to be expanded. This could be achieved by getting more plays on different commercial radio stations and getting them on somewhat of a high rotation which will increase the expose and create more fans. Also the band should take use social media to its full capacity as it has a unbelievable reach and it will be the best way to obtain a lot more fans and expose.

Art Of Sleeping will be a band to watch for 2013, as the major success for the band is yet to come.

...will compare and contrast two works of art using concepts I am learning about for evaluating art. The two works of art I chose to compare are The Eros Sleeping at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Aphrodite at the Louvre Musuem. The Eros Sleeping is my first choice for a piece of art between 30,000 B.C. and 500 C.E. I think this is a beautiful piece of art. While looking through thousands and thousands works of art at several different museum sites this piece really caught my eye. The Eros Sleeping is a bronze statue from the Hellenistic period, and dated at the 3rd-2nd century B.C. It is one of a few bronze statues to have survived from antiquity. The statue is of a cute little chubby baby with wings asleep on a rock that was added at a later date. (Eros Sleeping, nd) The second work of art I chose was also from the Hellenistic period and was dated to 100 B. C is The Aphrodite. Aphrodite is a beautiful Greek sculpture of a half- naked woman sort of leaning to one side. (Aphrodite, nd) Two blocks of marble were used to make it. Her arms were never found. Both piece to me are masterpieces, but kind of hard to compare. The Eros Sleeping is made out of bronze whereas Aphrodite is made out of marble. Both pieces are three dimensional. Neither piece has any color but I have read that the Aphrodite once wore metal jewelry. She wore a headband, earrings, and a bracelet. The holes still remain. The Eros Sleeping and the Aphrodite are sculpted with so...

Sleeping and Gpa

...Can Sleeping Affect Your GPAs? Our statistics project is about how the amount of sleeping hours can affect your GPA. Researchers have shown that lack of sleeping will affect the ability to study of the students. We are told that sleeping is very important as it restores your energy after a whole day working. Having lack of sleep can weaken the ability to concentrate, stay alert, think critically and solve problems of the student and thus, can affect their academic performance. Is it true and does it differs between different major students? In this project we would like to compare students who are majoring in Arts and Business and how lack of sleep or having more hours of sleeping affects their overall GPAs. Our null hypothesis is that there is no significant difference in the relationship of the hours of sleep and the students' GPAs. We are expecting on our alternative hypothesis that there is a significant difference in that relationship. In order to conduct our research, we will select randomly 2 samples of 15 Art students and 15 Business major students. We agreed that less than 4 hours of sleep is not enough to perform well in school and having more than 4 hours of sleep is beneficial for the students to do well academically. Why should our project be considered? We think this is important for students to know whether sleeping can have a significant impact on their academic performance or not. Being acknowledged about the importance of sleep can help the......

World of Art

...Chezelle Coqueran Prof. Jennifer Swoboda ART 123 – Art Appreciation 24 August 2011 A World of Art The world is full of art. Some art is easily recognizable and pleasant to the viewer. Some art work is challenging and confusing to the viewer. And yet there is still art work that is non-appealing and even controversial, but is still worthy of conversation or debate. In this art assignment I selected five different pieces of art, by five different artists. The art work has appealed to me for different reasons, whether it was the color or controversial matter, I feel like with art, it’s not like picking out a hair style or an outfit to put on where everything needs to make sense or match, it just needs to appeal to the viewer, and depending on the viewer’s mood at the time, the art pieces can be very different. The first art piece I selected was from the Museum of Modern Art; The Sleeping Gypsy, 1897 by Henri Rousseau. (Rousseau) I liked this oil on canvas painting for its simplicity and calmness. Henri Rousseau, a toll collector by trade, was a French Post-impressionist self-taught painter; even though he was never properly trained his natural born talent was admired by other artist including more famed avant-garde artists like Pablo Picasso and Vasily Kandinsky. His type of art “derived from the style and subject matter of popular print culture”. (Rousseau) Rousseau described the painting of the gypsy as wandering Negress who played the mandolin. She was so tired that she...

Exhibition Review: Art of Change: New Directions from China and the Discourse of the Ridiculous and the Sublime.

...Art of Change: New Directions from China and The Discourse of the Ridiculous and the Sublime. Art of Change: New Directions from China, Hayward Gallery, London, UK, 7th September 2011 to 9th December 2012. While long regarded as two ends of the spectrum, the Sublime and the Ridiculous have never been seen as two aspects that are inherently irreconcilable. The Ridiculous, when utilized effectively, is able to assist in perpetuating the sublime despite their disparate natures. The Ridiculous in art has the ability to probe sublimities that deal with transcendence and venturing beyond liminal boundaries. However, the relationship between the Sublime and the Ridiculous must be one of careful consideration as when construed inappropriately, the ridiculous nature of an artwork can overblow and nullify the Sublime, rendering it as purely ridiculous in its entirety, displaying the precarious nature between the Sublime and the Ridiculous and how “one step above the sublime makes the ridiculous and one step above the ridiculous makes the sublime” The discourse on the relationship between the Ridiculous and the Sublime of this essay will start with the works of Chinese artist Duan Ying Mei that are located early in the exhibition, Art of Change: New Directions from China. Duan’s Sleeping, 2004/2012 (Fig.1), a performance installation of a live performer silently sleeping on a white shelf elevated high up on a gallery wall. Exhibiting in the same space is also Duan’s In......

Teaching

...Titian was known for his remarkable use of colors. Titian joined the workshop of Giovanni Bellini in Venice. However, it was through contact with Giorgione, who was also previously trained in Giovanni Bellini’s workshop, that he mainly developed his early style. He was also known as a painter of various profane subjects, in which he usually painted nude females to represent beauty and charm, his “ Venus of Urbino” is one them, which shows the goddess of love. These skills drew the attention of intellectually ambitious Italian dukes and aristocrats. His painting methods, particularly in the application and use of color, would exercise a profound influence not only on painters of the Italian Renaissance, but on future generations of Western art. The painting shows nude young woman, reclining on a bed in the luxurious surroundings. The painting represents the allegory of marriage and was a “teaching” model to Guilia Varano, the young wife of eroticism, fidelity and motherhood. The evident eroticism of the painting, in fact, reminded the women of the marital obligations...

Violence in Movies

...Violence in the Movies: Art Imitating Actuality Brenda McCain AIU Online Abstract This paper focuses on violence in the movies. It will address the psychological aspects of murders and domestic violence in the U.S. and the effects that are related to violent films. It will also concentrate on intimate partner violence on the silver screen. Violence in the Movies: Art Imitating Actuality This paper will provide an overview of violence in the movies. It will address the effects of the killings and its association with the violence in art. It will also focus on how intimate partner violence has been one of the most omnipresent factors globally affecting women in public health. This paper will dissect the psychology and effects of murder and domestic violence and its depiction in popular movies. It will also reveal the obsessive violent nature that our society has embodied in motion pictures. Dissecting Murder The first detection was the “crisis of violence,” in the psychology of murder. This is practiced and carried out so much on the silver screen that society has become desensitized by murder. Adams (1972), states, “That easy empathy with cinema slayings, together with a growing tolerance of real-life brutality suggests a dismaying conclusion: beneath the surface, Americans may be less alarmed by murder—and more attracted to it—than they care to admit” (p. 58, 4p). Though this has become reality as we know it,......

Surrealism

...The early part of the twentieth century ushered in several profoundly evolving styles of painting. Cubism, Expressionism, Futurism, and Dada could assault the senses and offend the viewer’s ideals while simultaneously extracting intense emotions. These movements were based on the beliefs that the artist could express their emotions directly to the viewer through the art, and that art should not be restricted by reason and social limitations. With a kind of nihilistic approach, and an almost selfish attitude, these new styles were the first to present a truly individualist nature. This unique take on artistic expression led to the formation of the Surrealist movement in the 1920’s. Surrealism, as defined by the Collins English Dictionary, is: “a movement in art and literature in the 1920s, which developed especially [sic] from dada, characterized by the evocative juxtaposition of incongruous images in order to include unconscious and dream elements.” Although he was not limited to one particular style, or even one particular medium, no one artist is more identifiable with surrealist paintings than Salvador Dali. His surreal works, which he calls “hand-painted dream photographs,” are filled with images, often grotesque, over stretching landscapes which in and of themselves could send a viewer into a cycle of deep contemplation. Dali’s most famous painting of this type is The Persistence of Memory, oil on canvas, 1931. The small canvas, only 9½ x 13 inches, shows us......

...to the old man on a bench by a remarkable picture of a red horse called “the Stubbs chestnut horse”, which is described as a magnificent beast with power and potency. This is where it starts as the old man is trying to teach a younger man about the paintings. The young man is restless and does not have the passion and time for studying art as the older man, and therefore he leaves the gallery. While sitting on the bench and admiring the painting, a French group of school girls enter the room and draws a lot of attention, especially the head of the group which is a sixteen years old French girl, describes as “a package to be admired.. with a pert little face.. she was an original, the ‘card’, the wit, perhaps even the buffoon”. The old man immediately gets spellbound of her, as he starts to reveal to the narrator, who is sitting next to him on the bench, how he got rejected by the love of his life in his past when he was twelve. The French girl reminds him of his love of life as why he can’t stop staring at her. The girl gets drawn by the picture of the red horse and then falls asleep right beside the old man. When the French girl is sleeping on the...

Realism Art

...Realism is a 20th century art movement which took a diverse approach to representing the figure, yet has being ongoing from around the 18th century. It depicted what was happening in a contemporary way, an attempt to define what was real with no bias or personal preference from the artist. Only portraying what they saw. The movement originated in france in the 1850’s after the 1848 revolution. These Realists positioned themselves against Romanticism, a genre dominating French literature and artwork in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Seeking to be undistorted by personal bias, Realism believed in the ideology of objective reality and revolted against the exaggerated emotionalism of the Romantic movement. Truth and accuracy became the goals of many Realists. Many paintings depicted people at work, underscoring the changes wrought by the Industrial and Commercial Revolutions. The popularity of such 'realistic' works grew with the introduction of photography, a new visual source that created a desire for people to produce representations which look “objectively real.” Thereafter this new approach to representing the figure grew and new forms such as American realism and social realism where introduced to the art world. Therefore in view of this i will be looking at the American realist Edward Hopper and the realist painter Lucian Freud. Both these artists where at the forefront of modern art and both took different approaches to......

The Eight Types of Art

...The Eight Types of Art Carita Dauer Art Appreciation HUMA 205-1202B Unit 1 IP Abstract In this paper I will explain the difference between eight types of art. These forms of art include: painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, printmaking, conceptual art, installation art, and performance art. I will then give a specific example of each form of art type to better explain each of them. The Eight Types of Art When a person tries to look up the word “Art” in the dictionary, it can be very difficult to find a clear definition of the word. There are many definitions for art, but these include various areas of art such as pop art, or modern art and not just art by itself. So with that being said the best definitions I found are as follows. Art is a visual form of human expression that can be applied to many subjects which engenders, by intent or otherwise, aesthetic and/or intellectual appreciation (Clarke, 2012). Art can also be classified as all of the processes and products of human skill, imagination, and invention. When the term is referring to a contemporary piece of art, the definitions of art usually reflect art theory and include music, drama, painting, and sculpture types (Art, 2010). Performance Art is defined as a dramatic presentation given by visual artists, such as actors or dancers. They generally perform in front of audiences, but not in a formal theatrical setting (Frank, 2011). The example I found of this type of art would be the......

Analysis on Rear Window

...Hitchcock The scene in the film Rear Window was about the community and the protagonist named L.B. Jefferies. The scene started with the window. Then came the cat walking in the alley. From that moment, the audience can see the whole set of the neighborhood early in the morning and L.B. Jefferies sleeping when he was sweaty. Next, the viewer can see the old fashioned thermometer, the composer shaving his beard, the couple sleeping outside their balcony, the dancing woman in a pink undergarment, the dog’s leash tied to the lamppost, and the woman with a pet bird. Then back to the L.B. Jefferies. At that moment, the viewer can see him taking a nap in his pajamas, in a wheelchair, his leg in a cast with his name on it, his broken camera, his black and white pictures, and a magazine of a woman. Overall, Alfred Hitchcock filmed this scene to deliver the audience the idea of what the neighborhood looks like, who are the people in the neighborhood, and what they do in their everyday life. Not only about the neighborhood but also the protagonist. He also wants to show what kind of a person L.B. Jefferies is and why is the protagonist of the story. In general, Alfred Hitchcock delivered his beautiful art of mise-en-scene and cinematography to convey this scene. In terms of mise-en-scene, the most noticeable elements observed in the scene were the production design and acting. For the production design, the 1950’s feel of the movie was effective because of the set design, prop,......

Art and Empathy

...and horrifying events that happened during the Holocaust. When one thinks of a man, you think of father, solider and other manly things. A great deal of pride comes along with being and man. Along with pride, testosterone, intensity, and all sorts of other factors key into the characteristics of men. However, the Holocaust completely stripped men of most of these characteristics. The Holocaust did not allow men to be men. Holocaust art, the “Tale of the Sprinter” by Sudeep Pagedar, and Vladek Spiegelman in the memoirs Maus by Art Spiegelman are examples of how men suffered during the Holocaust and the amount of empathy produced from the suffering of these men. Empathy is the ability to see something from somebody else's point of view and to walk a mile in their shoes if you will. Men are very prideful individuals who are very dominating members of society. The atrocity of the Holocaust has been displayed and expressed through various pieces of art and literature. Famous Holocaust painters like Felix Nussbaum have expressed this atrocity through art. Felix Nussbaum was a prisoner at Auschwitz who died there in 1944. The image to the right is one Nussbaum’s paintings that survived the Holocaust.
