During her time at College, Flack worked in the realm Abstract Expressionism in the New York art scene, but as a female she had to act like “one of the boys” to be taken seriously as an artist. During her time at Art College, she became interested in Realism. In 1965 she painted her first portrait from a photograph, which lead to her isolation from a popular art community because at the time it was acceptable to paint a work that was from photograph, but was unheard of to create a work that looked like a photograph. Flack has dedicated her work almost solely to ancient, female or feminine images. Flacks Vanitas’ paintings are part of still life portraits. Vanitas’ is one of her symbolic still life painting where each element of the painting has a meaning. Her work tells us an important story which draws in the viewers to consider what each symbol means. For her paintings, she used a variety of colors, mainly primary course colors; red, blue and yellow. She drew a variety of objects which were very close to each other. The objects she drew, she had her own perspective towards it. She painted her work on canvases using watercolors, acrylic paints and block paints. The reason she did painting got to do with realism was because, she was very much interested in things that had a important meaning and she thought the best way to express this is through paintings.
I think her work is extremely beautiful. I like the way she used acrylic paints to paint her work and the different effects she has brought to her work making it look so realistic. I also like the way she has put the objects together, filling up the whole page with symbolic…...

In the beginning of Ambrose Flacks story, “The Strangers that came to Town” the Duvitches were not accepted by their neighbors. Ambrose Flack is showing that the Duvitches neighbors aren’t very accepting. People who live on Syringa St. with the Duvitches aren’t very accepting because the Duvitches are not well off, they look different and they are considered born savages. Firstly, people in the Duvitches neighborhood don’t accept them because they were a poor family. “But the Duvitches were marked people. They were the one struggling family in a prosperous community—and poverty, amid prosperity, is often embarrassing and irritating to the prosperous” (3). This proves that people were embarrassed by the Duvitches because they are not wealthy like most people on Syringa St. Secondly; the Duvitches were not accepted by their neighbors......

...such themes as loneliness, isolation and maturity within the context of Australian family life and landscape. These themes, which come to represent serious and grave difficulties for the protagonists, are explored somewhat differently across the mediums of film and text. John Ruane’s cinematic interpretation of Tim Winton’s text provides a useful and constructive alternative perspective of these thematic difficulties. The Australian Family depicted in ‘That eye, the sky’ is the quintessential Australian country family. The depiction of the Flack family in the novel describes the stereotypical image of the Australian family. More…They live in a country cottage with chickens in the yard, holes in the asbestos wall sheeting and Sam Flack, the head of this house, drives a Ute. This description places the family in a stereotypical Australian place. The narrator in the novel, Ort, provides the reader with an insight into life as a member of the Flack family. For example, the reader can understand what Ort is thinking, when he… This example shows us the thought process that Ort goes through and the reader views his perspective of his family. In the film, the casting of Jamie Croft as Ort is believable and appears as one would imagine. Not only is the image of Ort believable but also how and what he thinks provides the viewer with a greater insight into the family. The film, however, misses out on important scenes, such as Ort’s first day of school and his mother’s attendance at......

Little Shop of Horrors Critique

...interesting. The plant continues to get bigger making the audience wonder what it’s going to do next. Furthermore, Seymour (main character) is starting to fall in love with Audrey. However, as most books do, there is an obstacle between the two. In this case it’s Orin Scrivello, an abusive dentist who is also Audrey’s boyfriend. It’s at this point in the plot, that things really take a change. Seymour ends up killing Orin and feeds him to the plant. Mr. Mushnik sees this and confronts Seymour, which results in a deal that won’t get Seymour in trouble. It is then that Mr. Mushnik is eaten by the plant, which startles Seymour and he begins to suspect that something is truly bad with the plant. In the end, the plant tries to eat Audrey, but Seymour ends up saving her, killing the plant in the process. Seymour and Audrey end up getting married and live happily ever after. Overall, the book is very compelling. It has a mixture of science fiction (outer-space plant), horror (deaths of Orin and Mr. Mushnik), and romance (Seymour and Audrey), which makes it hard to understand the major theme. After watching the film I believe that it’s about a guy and a girl who both want to live a perfect dream. Seymour dreams about living well, however, the world takes almost everything from him until he almost has nothing else to give. Audrey is a pretty woman who also dreams of living well, but is stuck in an abusive relationship that makes it seem like there is no way out. However, as the......

Case Study: Brussels and Bradshaw

...study we read about a young female intern (Audrey Locke) working for a firm named Brussels and Bradshaw. Brussels and Bradshaw is a well-known investment banking company that Audrey Locke desired to intern for. Audrey was well prepared for this opportunity and had the resume to back it up. The down turn in the economy made this internship more competitive and prized. Audrey was warned of the intensity, at Brussels and Bradshaw, by some of her friends. The position was offered to Audrey and she immediately accepted it. Audrey made it through the whole summer, but she could have been given a better work experience. The issues that troubled Audrey were many, and may be too burdensome to overcome. The training, in Chicago, went rather smoothly for Audrey and she was eager to report to the Toronto office and begin working. The initial assignments given to Audrey, were given without instruction. Audrey’s mentor (Jake Frescott) and assigned buddy (Christine Page) were nowhere to be found. In fact Audrey was not formally introduced to Christine until the fourth week of the internship. When Audrey and Christine were seen together, they were dubbed “the sorority girls”. This was a monolithic organization comprised of mostly males and apparent gender issues. The Project manager (Sean Patterson) that Audrey was working under was stagnate in his position for years. Sean seemed to be disgruntled by the lack of mobility and took it out on Audrey. Sean may have been altering Audrey’s......

...Unicef saved Audrey Hepburn's life as a child in Holland at the end of the war just as it was going to save the Sudanese boy's life, and that is one reason why she is so proud to be a Unicef ambassador. It is the repaying of a very personal debt. But there is a deeper connection with the war years, one which brings her to London this week, not only to raise money for Unicef through public performance, but to pay tribute to the unquenchable spirit of the child in trouble through the life of one individual, Anne Frank. On Thursday, at the Barbican, Audrey Hepburn and Michael Tilson Thomas conducting the London Symphony Orchestra will be presenting their version of the life of Anne Frank through the words of her diary and Tilson Thomas's specially composed music. It is a project which has returned both Tilson Thomas and Audrey Hepburn to their own youth through their identification with the undisguised turbulence of Anne Frank's own adolescence, one in which every emotion was intensified by incarceration and fear of capture. This is powerful material enough, but for Hepburn the connection with Anne Frank is even more personal. When I met her to talk about it she was perched in a plush Claridges suite. I was expecting sophistication, elegance and a polished film-star performance. I had been told that she was every good thing from hard-working, generous and thoughtful to charming and downright divine. This undersold her, making her sound bland. The woman I met surprised me......

Taking another picture of the Cigar stub lying in the ashtray Anna picked it up to bag, "Our killer was smoking that cigar." "This was definitely not a friendly home game." She commented, looking up at Flack as he came to a stop beside her, "Well pokers no longer a hobby it's a profession, as far as these kids are concerned desk jobs are for suckers." He told her with a small shrug; Anna nodded and turned to look at the two men, "Did you guys carry on playing when you kicked Kelly out?" she asked, pushing her glasses up into her hair. The guy in the green sweater was the one to answer, "No, that was the last game we played." He replied, before turning back to the cop in front of them. Frowning slightly Anna turned back to the table, letting her hand come to rest on her hip, "Lines are 500 and 250 and the hole cards just been dealt," she said, looking up in time to see Flack staring down at her, a surprised smile on his face, "You play poker?" he asked doubtfully. Crossing her arms, Anna narrowed her eyes, "Occasionally, why you got a problem with that?" she asked playfully, watching as Flacks smile widened, "In the couple months I've known you; you have not once been able to keep a straight face. It's impossible," he chuckled, Anna smiled, "Oh really?" "Yeah, now Mac he's got a poker face who knows what he's thinking." Flack said, making Anna laugh slightly as Mac......

The town begins to realize that they aren’t as bad as they thought and weren’t actually that different from them.

Some even considered them to be unattractive physically. The Duvitches were the only struggling family in town, it was often embarrassing and irritating to the other people. People who would walk by them on the street used to stop their noses at them. “It followed the Syringa Street Young, meeting him on the street, sometimes stopped their noses as they passed him by- a form of torment all the more acute when Mr. Duvitch had to share it with the children that happened to be with him.” Mr. Duvitch’s was known as untouchable and the other women in the town began to start rumours about Mrs. Duvitch.

Acceptance Is the True Freedom

... In this short story, “The Strangers that came to Town”, Ambrose Flack is  showing that true freedom is about being accepted. Freedom is demonstrated through  acceptance by being able to be who you are without being judged, being able to move to a  country by choice and being able to put aside your differences in order to acknowledge your  values.   Primarily, freedom is being accepted while still being able to be yourself. Throughout the  short story there were many times that the Duvitches could act like themselves without having to  worry if they were going to be accepted or not. Mr. Duvitch proudly showed off his hard work  and displayed his 61 fish that he caught for his family to Andy’s father knowing that he would not  be judged. “Proudly, oh, so proudly, Mr. Duvitch exhibited the catch that would probably feed his  family for the better part of the week” (Flack 6). Mr. Duvitch’s freedom to continue something he  enjoys such as fishing allowed him to express himself the way he wanted to and allowed people  to accept him for that. Mr. Duvitch also allowed himself to be the confident and happy self when  surrounded by people he knew he would be accepted by. “As the host Mr. Duvitch was a man  we were seeing for the first time. Overjoyed to have neighbors in his house, he was so full of  himself that I was conscious of an invisible stature in him which made him seem quite as tall as  Biondi 2  Father” (Flack 14). As well as Mr. Duvitch, Mrs. Duvitch ......
