Melanie Parke
Arezzo Matina, Interior Painting, Botanical Still Life, Blue, Yellow Sunflowers

2021

$6,600

About

In this bright and inviting interior scene, an arrangement of cheerful yellow sunflowers in a planter on a stand sit beside a table with three yellow lemons and a bouquet of coral and yellow flowers in a vase over a white striped tablecloth. The dark blue window in the background opens to lush botany and fresh air outdoors. This square oil painting on canvas is signed, dated and titled on verso. Melanie Parke filters and reconstructs pastoral and bucolic still life settings that emerge from her own life through the ideology of memory. Flowers bind the artist to friendships and the women in her life, that sentiment propels her to paint compositions which reference lush clusters of time. Parke’s painting is a pleasure seeking process, the artist arranges the pictorial space intuitively, in broad and textured gestures, then pieces together arrangements that compose a homespun narrative. Specific interiors, botanical species and landscapes are often implied. By shifting the emphasis to pattern, texture and tone, she works to destabilize notions of exacting representation in an effort to build on a sensation of memory which conjures both comfort and longing. Parke’s paintings have been exhibited widely throughout the United States. Melanie Parke lives and work in Michigan.
