    are “tricksters”. Her art fluently expresses this. Grosse’s sculptures distort one’s point of view; one minute they feel like a giant and the next like an ant. This distortion helps people realize that perspective can be easily influenced, and that art has the ability to mold and transform them. Art distorts our perception of what things truly are, causing us to reflect on and learn from it. Through her novel Girl with a Pearl Earring, Tracy Chevalier expresses that art is fiction, which can be tailored to suit the audiences’ personal experiences, no matter the style or form. Since everyone has experienced different relationships and events throughout their lives, people may…

    Tracy Chevalier’s novel, Girl With a Pearl Earring, has very little basis in Vermeer’s masterpiece other than the same painter. Chevalier’s own internalized misogyny is evident in her use of archetypal female characters throughout this book, as well as her other works. Her personal bias influences the book so deeply, she refutes all historical fact in favor of rewriting the novels of the eighteenth century. Her complete lack of understanding of historical or artistic context and fact make her…

    Over the years, stretching an ear piercing has become widely popular among teens. The bigger that ear piercing is stretched the better it is. People find the whole idea of ear stretching to be gross and pointless. Ear stretching is not understood by older generations because of the terminology used when referring to ear stretching, the process of getting them to a specific size, and the whole idea of someone wanting to have giant holes in their ears. Older generations cannot seem to wrap their…

    When receiving a pair of earrings, it may come as a gift from your significant other or a birthday present, but my circumstances were quite different when I had received these graceful shimmering yellow pieces of jewelry. Traveling into a nostalgic room of my youthful past, I remembered the last time I shared a relatively short yet memorable conversation with my grandmother. She had made a tremendous effort of traveling all the way from Mexico to make her last visit. My grandmother was already…

I agree that one's’ worldviews stem from life experiences; however, more specifically, our worldviews come from our beliefs, which as we mature are adopted from those around us. Understanding the origins of our views can help us to evaluate and alter them in order to expand our knowledge and tolerance of other beliefs, cultures and social backgrounds. It can also alter…

    I chose to watch “The Girl With a Pearl Earring” for my final movie critique. As I watched this movie, I quickly realized that most of the shots were taken from the waist up. Which lead very little to critique, especially the lower portion of the garments. Regardless, the characters did not have any major costume change or wore any costumes that were distinctive enough to dissect. The main character was a peasant so clearly the garment was very simple with no embellishment. What I decided to…

    The Girl with the Pearl Earring is connected to the Renaissance in several ways. In the movie, Ruijvan, a patron commissioned Vermeer to create a painting of Griet. This is a representation of the relationship between a patron and an artist during the Renaissance. A patron would specify what he or she wanted, what the subject should be, other figures that should be included, etc. In return, the patron would support the artist financially. Vermeer 's sole source of support came through his…
