Three artists whom I admire more than most are  Stanley Kubrick, Gustav Klimt and Michael Parkes.  Art, like every other opinion about Life, Universes and Other Stuff is a personal opinion.   Since I write a Blog, I express my personal opinions here.  You may not agree with me, but you may also have affection for the work of these artists.

“( Gustav Klimt) most definitely he has, along with the entire Viennese Secessionist movement, influenced my work. If my spirit is based in the Renaissance, my heart is based in the designs of the Viennese at the turn of the 19th century”. — Michael Parkes, 2013.  Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) who was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.

Stanley Kubrick (July 26, 1928 – March 7, 1999) was an American film director, screenwriter, producer and cinematographer.

Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862– February 6, 1918) was an Austrian Symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. His major works include paintings, muralssketches, and other art objects. Klimt’s primary subject was the female body, and his works are marked by a frank eroticism—nowhere is this more apparent than in his numerous drawings in pencil.


Éric Alfred Leslie Satie (pronounced: [eʁik sati]) (17 May 1866 – Paris, 1 July 1925; signed his name Erik Satie after 1884) was a French composer and pianist. Satie was a colourful figure in the early 20th century Parisian avant-garde. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalismrepetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd.
