The Fourth Turning
the Strauss–Howe generational theory
, also known as the Fourth Turning theory
, describes a theorized recurring generation
cycle in American history
and global history
. It was devised by William Strauss
and Neil Howe
. According to the theory, historical events are associated with recurring generational personas (archetypes). Each generational persona unleashes a new era (called a turning) lasting around 20–25 years, in which a new social, political, and economic climate (mood) exists. It’s a part of my ArtworX
collection by me by Paul Talbot.
Born from a lifelong fascination with abstract art. Think of them as me ‘visually jamming’ along to my favourite tunes and having a good time. Just doing what I love. Without any of the usual constraints or limitations that are the inarguable truths of tattooing as a medium.
What is Abstract Art?
The definition. Abstraction literally means the distancing of an idea from objective referents. That means, in the visual arts, pulling a depiction away from any literal, representational reference points. You can also call abstract art nonrepresentational art.
The first signs. Abstraction can be traced to Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Cubism. All three helped realize the idea that art could be non-representative.
The movement. Modern abstract art was born early in the 20th century. It was completely radical for its day. Artists began to create simplified objections with little or no reference to the “real” world.
