Corey Parker
Painter Printmaker Illustrator

Corey is an artist working in Cleveland, Ohio. He grew up in the rural farmlands of Michigan which has directly influenced his landscapes. Studying painting under George Pratt,
his landscapes depict a mood and emotion much like the old masters such as Inness and Whistler. These particular works reflect a series of montypes he created within
a two month period, that are amazing.

These Monotypes for the most part , are his early experiments working with the press. This series entitled "Sticks and Stones" became his first solo show in a local Cleveland gallery-- Which was one of the best shows I've seen.
He quickly mastered the press using nuances of selected line, color, and texture. - making highly experienced works, as if he had been printmaking for decades.
His compositions are unexpected and well crafted, reminiscent of contemporary American painters such as Mark English and Thomas Sgourus, that I didn't think anyone could match- Well, he did.
-Eye-Likey says: this guy is a true natural.

Blanca Gomez

George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, one of the decisive figures of post-war American design. The focus of his broad oeuvre was on textile design: As head of the Herman Miller Company's textile division, Girard designed a multitude of textiles that reflect his love of festive colours and patterns. He favoured abstract and geometric forms, typically put together in bright constellations of colours. Alexander Girard's upholstery fabrics have lost none of their charm, and a range of classic Girard designs such as Quatrefoil, Names or Toostripe Orange are included in the Vitra and Maharam "Textiles of the 20th century" cushion collection. Having originally studied architecture, Girard made a name for himself over his long career in the fields of furniture, exhibition and interior design as well as in the graphic arts.
