Seeing a lot of back to school posts at the moment and I just want to say, even now, eight years after I finished compulsory education, I still sometimes feel a sense of relief when I wake up and don’t have to go to school.
If school is your own personal hell, like it was mine, just know that…
Me and my darling isadorabull meet Melanie Monroe.
You are all such incredibly lovely (and separate ;) ) people
Slap them all in togas instead of suits and it would perfect
It also follows a pyramidal composition!
However, I would argue that this picture is more Baroque than Renaissance. Notable features of Baroque art are:
- Images are direct, obvious, and dramatic.
- Tries to draw the viewer in to participate in the scene.
- Depictions feel physically and psychologically real. Emotionally intense.
- Extravagant settings and ornamentation.
- Dramatic use of color.
- Dramatic contrasts between light and dark, light and shadow.
- As opposed to Renaissance art with its clearly defined planes, with each figure placed in isolation from each other, Baroque art has continuous overlapping of figures and elements.
- Common themes: grandiose visions, ecstasies and conversions, martyrdom and death, intense light, intense psychological moments.
In the baroque, artists strove to evoke aesthetic responses. Now I’m not talking about aesthetic as in “oh thats pretty” I’m talking about aesthetic like that punch in the gut reaction you get to something.
One of the ways this was done was through the depiction of intense emotion which we see in this photograph. compare to Bernini
The picture also displays a wonderful use of chiaroscuro (an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction on something) a style used extensively by Caravaggio and other Baroque artists.
oh my god
This post keeps getting better.
You are not obligated to comment on everything that happens. You’re not a bad person if you do not.
Conversely, commenting on something just because you feel guilty if you don’t say something, or because you worry everybody will think you’re a bad person, doesn’t make you a good person.
Do things you want to, believe in, and have thought through. There’s no shame in staying out of a topic you aren’t ready to wade into, even if you might not ever be ready to. There’s no shame in not promoting a viewpoint or voice you’re not fully comfortable with, no matter how many other people are doing so, no matter how important these other people seem to be.
Do what YOU believe is right, what you can handle, and don’t feel rushed into it. Be caring, be open minded, be willing to look for and absorb new information, but ultimately, you have to be the judge of what you believe in, and what you say, or what views you promote.
If you’re not sure, you can always wait until you are. You can do more harm than good by reblogging or posting something you’re not sure about.
Being a good person doesn’t mean having to do something all the time.
Sometimes the best move is to not make one.
Trust in you.
So a guy asked Reddit for help about his divorce, gets horrible advice, follows that horrible advice, is now in even MORE trouble, and… asks Reddit for help again.
This can only go well.
