Artist Laurel Sparks

Beauty, color, and decay are words to describe the paintings by Laural Sparks. Her statement says, "Decorative and biological elements are fused to create hermaphroditic icons; Venetian chandeliers and human bones are among my inspirations. In the spirit of collage, color, glitter, papier-mache’ and objects adorn the surface, connoting excess."

The combination of glamorous chandeliers and bones is absolutely thrilling to me.




From top to bottom: Drella, Sonata of Bones, Limbo, and Teardrop Explodes.

Check out more enticing paintings at Laurel Sparks's website or at the Howard Yezerski Gallery.

I really can't get into these paintings. Actually they remind me of a Roeshack ink blot. It looks like a blob of paint put into a folded blotter and squashed together. Sorry -
