About Me

Hello my name is Josh Davis and I will be doing my school project in Catalonia and Spain Through The Arts over the concept of horror vacui. I am a student in Indiana University Bloomington and I am a standing junior currently.

Thesis

In this project, we will explore the evolution of the horror vacui concept through the ages and its significance in art and culture. We will display this with the analysis of its ancient roots in Greek, Roman, and Egyptian art, its medieval expression in Gothic architecture and illuminated manuscripts, its revival in Renaissance art, its integration with Catholicism during the Baroque era, and its modern interpretations in abstract expressionism and surrealism, this project demonstrates the enduring appeal and impact of horror vacui in artistic expression.
