Pretty Paintings: Michael Parkes

Ashlie recently hinted that I might like Michael Parkes' work. And she was right! When I looked it up I was instantly smitten. It's like Dali went Art Nouveau to create illustrations for fairy tales. All paintings and sculptures I've seen are magnificent. I wish I knew all the stories behind them!

  3. Ashlie sure has an eye for these things and I think she hit the nail on the head with these intriguing paintings. I especially love the one with the odd little hairdresser.

  4. The paintings don't really do it for me personally, although I can totally appreciate his awesome technical abilities, I think it's a bit surreal for me maybe but that sculpture is absolutely incredible! Is it hand carved in stone or cast from a mold after making it clay I wonder? Stone carving is such an incredible craft!
