5.0 out of 5 stars Art of Michael Parkes II, July 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Art of Michael Parkes II (Hardcover)
If you a fan of Michael Parkes' work, this book will not disappoint. I bought both this book and its predecessor, The Art of Michael Parkes, through Amazon. They are not consecutive, that is, they overlap chronologically, though they contain different work. I also have a couple of other books of Parkes' art that I acquired years ago, and there is some overlap, but he is so prolific that there are always new images to enjoy, become mesmerized by, drift off into some other reality with ... I have been an admirer of Parkes' work for many years now. Aside from the sort of overlap I mentioned above, a lot of the pictures are very similar: the same composition with slight different/rearranged elements, variations on earlier paintings, etc. Somehow this never bothers me; I just move deeper into the Parkes dream-reality, every image reinforcing an altered state of consciousness. Those familiar with Parkes extremely accomplished style and the lush, surreal beauty of his images, won't need to be told what this is all about. To them I would say, this book holds up very well with his previous books, including the ones for sale on his website for hundreds of dollars. For those new to Parkes, I say: you got to look at this.
