Chris Parks is a major part of the 3 time Oscar Winning team behind the special effects for films such as Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain and Tree of Life starring Brad Pitt.
About the works:
Abstract artist, Chris Parks, creates an ethereal world through his dynamic fluid paintings which capture light, movement and depth in a totally unique way.
Using mixed media within a liquid medium, Chris creates moving fluid paintings which continually change and develop over time and are frozen at a particular moment in time through the use of photography.
All the paintings are naturally occurring events that Chris creates in his studio using organic ingredients. Nothing is digitally manipulated in any way: all colours are visible at the time of capturing the image. Organic particles are used to add a natural randomness to the flow and feel of the images. The paintings only exist for a moment before they evolve into something different and the desired effect is gone forever.
The artists background:
Having studied Engineering at Imperial College, London and then Design at the Royal College of Art, London, much of Chris's professional life has been concerned with the oceans, film and photography. The fluid paintings that he creates are both inspired by, and draw on the movements and dynamics that he has discovered whilst filming some of the smallest organisms that inhabit the oceans.
It is this rare combination of engineer, artist and photographer, combined with his experiences under the sea, that has enabled Chris to produce work that is not only created in a way that is totally unique, but which is also unparalleled in its fluidity, movement and subtlety .
Availablity of works:
The client has flexibility as to the form in which they get the artwork. You can choose the framing from either Aluminium & Acrylic Mounted, Float Frame or Standard Frame and the size. If you are buying the first of an edition, then in most cases you also have the option to have it as a one off – which obviously is a higher price because now we can’t sell any more in that edition but is also more collectable. Below are a range of sizes, prices and editions so hopefully you can see the type of choices you have, but please be aware they can be printed to the size and with the type of framing you require.
