Grayson Perry Grayson Perry, CBE (born 24 March 1960) is an English artist, known mainly for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing. Perry's vases have classical forms and are decorated in bright colours, depicting subjects at odds with their attractive appearance. There is a strong autobiographical element in his work, in which images of Perry as "Claire", his female alter-ego, often appear. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003. Early life[edit] Grayson Perry was born in Chelmsford. In his childhood Perry took an interest in drawing and building model aeroplanes, both of which were to become themes in his work.[3] To escape from a difficult family situation and his stepfather's violence, he retreated to his bedroom or his stepfather’s shed where he became absorbed in a fantasy life, sometimes involving a teddy bear (called Alan Measles) that had become a "surrogate father figure".[2] Cross-dressing[edit] Growing up, he had unusual sexual desires and fantasies.

» 15 Ridiculously Good Graphic Design Portfolios (Plus 1 Bonus) A couple of weeks ago I realized that I have become too engrossed in the whole social media and technology side of the design industry, so I have been on a wild quest to find inspiration. I have been searching high and low for work that is not only functional, but also a wonder of form. As an added bonus, I am finally happy to announce that I have finally launched my revised portfolio! As it currently stands there are a few items in need of some better descriptions or photography, however I plan on working out these issues over time. I look forward to any constructive criticism I may receive, and a special thanks to Alen of CSS Globe for his awesome JQuery Easy Slider. Anthony J.

Gaston Bachelard Gaston Bachelard (French: [baʃlaʁ]; June 27, 1884 – October 16, 1962) was a French philosopher.[2] He made contributions in the fields of poetics and the philosophy of science. To the latter he introduced the concepts of epistemological obstacle and epistemological break (obstacle épistémologique et rupture épistémologique). He rose to some of the most prestigious positions in the Académie française and influenced many subsequent French philosophers, among them Michel Foucault, Louis Althusser, Dominique Lecourt and Jacques Derrida. Life and work[edit] Bachelard was a postmaster in Bar-sur-Aube, and then studied physics before finally becoming interested in philosophy. He was a professor at Dijon from 1930 to 1940 and then became the inaugural chair in history and philosophy of the sciences at the Sorbonne. Bachelard's psychology of science[edit] In the English-speaking world, the connection Bachelard made between psychology and the history of science has been little understood. Thomas S.
