Bridget Louise Riley CH CBE (born 24 April 1931 in Norwood, London) is an English painter who is one of the foremost exponents of Op art.[1] She currently lives and works in London, Cornwall, and France.[2] Early life and education[edit] Riley was born in London in 1931. Her father, John Fisher Riley, originally from Yorkshire, was a printer, as his own father had been. In 1938 he relocated the printing business, together with his family, to Lincolnshire.[3] Between 1956 and 1958 she nursed her father, after he was involved in a serious car crash, and herself suffered a breakdown. Her early work was figurative with a semi-impressionist style. Early in her career, Riley worked as an art teacher from 1957-58 at the Convent of the Sacred Heart, Harrow (now known as Sacred Heart Language College). Work[edit] Riley's mature style, developed during the 1960s, was influenced by a number of sources.[10][clarification needed] Cataract 3, 1967, PVA on canvas

John Ford L'importance de l'œuvre de John Ford a été brillamment analysée par Patrick Brion et Gilles Deleuze. L'un et l'autre relèvent chez John Ford des thématiques et des motifs visuels qui en font un cinéaste à la fois épique et romanesque. Pour Patrick Brion, l'œuvre de John Ford est une œuvre immense, une œuvre de 150 films qui recouvre presque cinquante ans - de 1917 à 1966 - de production. Les premiers films de John Ford appartiennent à l'époque où les grands studios commencent à s'ériger, le dernier film d'action, Frontière chinoise est tourné au moment où ces studios hollywoodien ne sont plus artistiquement que l'ombre de ce qu'ils avaient été. De tous les grands cinéastes, John Ford a été celui dont l'œuvre a subi le plus durement les destructions et l'incurie des grands studios. L'œuvre de Ford peut schématiquement être divisée en cinq périodes d'inégale durée. La seconde recouvre la carrière de John Ford de 1922 à 1931.

Mandala Thangka painting of Manjuvajra Mandala The term is of Sanskrit origin. It appears in the Rig Veda as the name of the sections of the work, but is also used in other religions and philosophies, particularly Buddhism. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention of practitioners and adepts, as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation and trance induction. In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. Hinduism[edit] Religious meaning[edit] A yantra is a two- or three-dimensional geometric composition used in sadhanas, puja or meditative rituals. Many situate yantras as central focus points for Hindu tantric practice. Despite its cosmic meanings a yantra is a reality lived. Political meaning[edit] Buddhism[edit] Early and Theravada Buddhism[edit] Tibetan Vajrayana[edit] Practice[edit]
