TESTING ART

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.
