Description:

Oil on canvas, measuring 36 x 48 inches. Brown wood beveled frame. Colorful image of four band members mid-note--bass, violin, banjo, and horn--with a free-flowing geometricity evoking cubism. William Tolliver (1951-2000) was a brilliant self-taught, Mississippi-born artist. He arose during the mid-1980's as a brilliant regional talent, an individual impelled by a desire to capture the landscapes and peoples of his native deep South. Whether dealing with everyday workers or back-alley jazzmen, he conveys a universal message through the common human experience. He was born in Vicksburg. His mother worked in the cotton fields by day, but also raised 14 children. To stimulate their interest in learning, she often challenged William and his older brother to drawing contests. Discovering Williamís talent, she borrowed art books from the library that exposed her son to the works of the European masters. At age 14, Tolliver dropped out of school and left Mississippi to join the Job Corps program in Los Angeles. During his year-and-a-half stint with Job Corps, he studied carpentry at a government-sponsored trade school. Assisted by an instructor at the trade school who was also a visual artist, Tolliver received additional instruction and information about the techniques of painting. He married in 1977 and, in 1981, he moved his family to Lafayette, Louisiana, where an oil boom had created employment opportunities in the construction trades. In Lafayette, he worked as a wallpaper hanger and a house painter. Two years later, however, the cityís building industry fell into decline, leaving Tolliver unemployed. Laid off from his job and without income, he set out to relax in his free hours by painting with his daughters paint kit. Tolliver soon began to paint in a new and unique style that has been termed "representational abstract expressionism." Able to work in numerous mediums- oil, acrylic, watercolor, oil pastel, and dimensional reliefs- Tolliver was forever exploring new techniques.Critically ranked with such famous African American artists as Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence, Tolliver soon gained the reputation as one of Americaís most renowned contemporary artists. He has received numerous awards and recognitions for his contributions in the field of art. He also produced the poster for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, the city where he finally settled.

Book Description Atria, Emily Bestler Books, 2012. Taschenbuch. Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Wie neu - Now a major motion picture from Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the blockbuster Twilight series and the upcoming movie Insurgent , starring Academy Award Nominee John Malkovich, Nicholas Hoult, and Teresa Palmer and directed by Jonathan Levine. R is having a no-life crisis-he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he'd rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization. And then he meets a girl. First as his captive, then his reluctant house guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R's gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn't want to eat this girl-although she looks delicious-he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can't imagine, and their hopeless world won't change without a fight. 256 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # INF1000881907

Book Description Books On Demand, 2009. Taschenbuch. Condition: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Wie neu leichte Lagerspuren - Es ist schon ein Lichtblick zu wissen, dass immer jemand Hoffnung schenken will. Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt , wird oft etwas ironisch geäußert. Meist, um zu sagen, dass eigentlich keine Chance mehr besteht ein Ziel zu erreichen. Doch welche Möglichkeiten bleiben noch, wenn die Hoffnung erst gestorben ist Mit diesem zweiten Band der Buchreihe Gedankenworte möchte ich meinen Teil dazu beitragen, dass für Sie, Dich oder Euch die Hoffnung weiter bestehen kann. Mit meinen Gedichten und Texten, beruhend auf unterschiedlichen Erfahrungen, Ereignissen, Begegnungen und Gedanken, kann ich manchmal vielleicht der sein, der etwas Hoffnung gibt.Die Gedichte und Texte über Liebe, Freundschaft, Familie, Trauer, Freude und vieles mehr sollen aber nicht nur Hoffnungsspender sein. Ich wünsche mir, dass sie auch einfach nur Spaß machen und etwas zum Nachdenken anregen. Dazu sollen auch die Bilder von Birgit Kania und die Fotografien beitragen. 88 pp. Deutsch.
