Welcome to our latest feature – Artful Home. We think our customers are incredibly talented with an amazing eye for beauty. We thought it would be fun to give our readers a look into their homes and lives. We wanted to show their choices in art and how it fits in their home, while we learn more about their lives and work. Check out our first edition of Artful Home with Chris Parker.
It’s hard to say if we like Chris Parker more because of his many talents or because he is a heck of a nice guy. Chris has mastered many of the digital arts – from photography to cinematography to motion film. You can check out his latest work with choreographer Emery LeCrone and New York City Ballet Dancers Megan LeCrone and Russell Janzena and a documentary style video on a Brooklyn-based distillary. Chris is also a member of Arliss Parker, a band that has gained a following for it’s unique folktronica sound.
I’ve lived in a small, six unit apt building in brooklyn since 2008. The building is a nice mix of artists with an art gallery/performance space on the ground floor. I try to surround myself with comfortable, simple stuff. If anything I’d have to say my decorating style is minimal, open, and cozy. The art in my apartment follows the same philosophy.
I love the simplicity and the three-dimensionality of the print. Between the richness of texture in the scene and the quality of the print there is a depth to the image that really fascinates me. The print is displayed in my kitchen. It seemed appropriate to have a breakfast table hung above the breakfast table ; )
I work primarily in digital imaging which includes everything from cinematography to tech work on photoshoots. Lately I have been doing more motion picture photography, specifically music videos and documentaries, which I’ve really been enjoying. My recent work includes a documentary about a vodka distillery in Sunset Park, Brooklyn called The Industry City Distillery as well as a dance film for Emery LeCrone, a New York City Ballet choreographer.
Thank you Chris for giving us the tour!
