Ellen G. White Portrait, Harry S. Ahn 2018 Andrews University

Ellen G. White Portrait, Harry S. Ahn

Harry Ahn

Prophetess, preacher, missionary, mother, and author of over one hundred original and compiled books, Ellen G. White filled her life of 87 years with selfless service to the God and Gospel she so dearly loved. While her wide travels took her not only across the United States but also through the European countries and Australia, she nevertheless found time to raise three sons together with her husband, best friend, and partner in the work of God, James White. The revelations she received in vision and related to the young Seventh-day Adventist church, together with the divinely inspired counsel she provided ...


James White Portrait, Harry S. Ahn 2018 Andrews University

James White Portrait, Harry S. Ahn

Harry Ahn

James White, co-founder of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and one of the first presidents of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, began his career of over thirty years as a humble Millerite preacher, travelling from place to place on a borrowed horse with a Bible, a prophetic chart, and notes for just three sermons. His first speaking tour met with astonishing success, winning a thousand converts to the Millerite faith, and success continued to follow him as he served the church as founder of the Review and Herald and Pacific Press Publishing Associations, publisher of the Advent Review (Adventist Review ...

Just A Coincidence? Whether Intention In Artistic Expression Alters Significance: An Analysis And Comparison Of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick And Matt Kish's Moby-Dick In Pictures: One Drawing For Every Page, Brittany Barnhouse 2018 University of Washington Tacoma

Just A Coincidence? Whether Intention In Artistic Expression Alters Significance: An Analysis And Comparison Of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick And Matt Kish's Moby-Dick In Pictures: One Drawing For Every Page, Brittany Barnhouse

Access*: Interdisciplinary Journal of Student Research and Scholarship

Using examples from Melville's Moby-Dick and Matt Kish's Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page, this paper explores how intention and coincidence contribute to perception of literature and art. There are too many patterns and details for certain aspects of Moby-Dick to be just a coincidence, and when the novel is viewed with this in mind, it changes the reader's relationship with the text and subsequently inspired artwork. By questioning the relationship with coincidence and intention as it relates to truth in storytelling and art, the reader by extension begins to question the very same in ...

To Save A Soul? Analyzing Hieronymus Bosch’S Death And The Miser, Ryan Bilger 2018 Gettysburg College

To Save A Soul? Analyzing Hieronymus Bosch’S Death And The Miser, Ryan Bilger

Student Publications

The Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch remains to this day one of the most famous artists of the Northern Renaissance. His unique style and fantastical images have made him an icon beyond his years. Bosch’s painting Death and the Miser, now in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., stands out as one of his most thematically complex paintings, packed with pertinent details and allusions to other works of his and those created by other artists. His inclusion of various demonic creatures, the figure of Death, and an angel and crucifix create a tense atmosphere surrounding the passing ...


Sub Lege To Sub Gratia: An Iconographic Study Of Van Eyck’S Annunciation, Christopher J. Condon 2018 Gettysburg College

Sub Lege To Sub Gratia: An Iconographic Study Of Van Eyck’S Annunciation, Christopher J. Condon

Student Publications

When the Archangel Gabriel descended from heaven to inform the Virgin Mary of her status as God’s chosen vehicle for the birth of Jesus Christ, she was immediately filled with a sense of apprehension. Gabriel’s words, “...invenisti enim gratiam apud Deum [you have found favor with God],” reassured the Virgin that she would face no harm, and the scene of the Annunciation (what this moment has come to be called) has forever been immortalized in Christian belief as a watershed moment in the New Testament. While many Byzantine icons of the Medieval period sought to depict this snapshot ...

Illusions Of "Blackness" In Contemporary Visual Culture, Michaël Dorn 2018 Lesley University College of Art and Design

Illusions Of "Blackness" In Contemporary Visual Culture, Michaël Dorn

MFA in Visual Arts Theses

My thesis begins with a primer of the historical concept of “black(ness)” and the roots of its racialization. Intertwined throughout my discussion in Section I, I will highlight a few of my research findings and discuss some of the installation images that I created as I studied the work of contemporary artists who use lexical and literal figurative “blackness” in their work—in particular, the oeuvre of Kerry James Marshall as featured in his retrospective exhibition Mastry. My discourse unfolds with a brief etymological review of both the English word “black” and its precedent conceptual forms in Section II ...

This thesis examines the work and actions of Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso throughout the Occupation of Paris during World War II, and in doing so, aims to demonstrate that the two artists were more closely aligned in wartime comportment and artistic production than the current scholarship might indicate.

He believes learning to do things your own way is empowering. As a world-renowned mouth and foot painter, Tom is a living example of how barriers can be overcome by doing things differently.

Convenient Camouflage, John Alleyne 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Convenient Camouflage, John Alleyne

LSU Master's Theses

ABSTRACT

Major influences in my work are most notably derived from the collages of Romare Bearden, paintings done by abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko, and the multidisciplinary practice of Rashid Johnson. This list of artists has been my influence for the past academic year as a result of personal research, some of which was conducted at the Museum of Modern Art, the TATE Modern in London and Musée du Louvre in Paris. My aim in my artwork and in this thesis is to change the perception of Black people, specifically Black men and boys, and to challenge stereotypes ...
