fun facts about me...

I have decided that this poor blog has been neglected as of late, so I have a new blog goal. Once a week I have to share a little known fact about me.

This weeks little known fact about me. The art if Michael Parke's makes me squeamish. I love the whimsical nature of his art, but I find allot of his figures have weird fatty deposits on their bodies. This odd placement of pudge makes me feel sick to my stomach, seriously I'm gagging as I post the images, It also happens when I see wet food bits in the sink drain. Now you could show me a real photograph of a nude morbidly obese person and I would be indifferent. Its the placement of the fat that makes me feel uncomfortable, like the fleshy wings of his sphinx characters.

Other pieces give me the odd sense of deja vu, like I have had nightmares I cant remember, containing these figures. Art doesn't normally elicit feelings out of me I either like or dislike for Michael Parke's I haven't decided which side of the coin he falls on yet.
