Mike Dargas – Hyperrealistic Portraiture

Mike Dargas was born 1983 in Cologne, Germany. Inspiried by Dali, Caravaggio and HR Giga Mike begins to focus on surrealism and realism. His works show the picture of people, painted realistically in oil on canvas. The precise technique gives, like a photography, a snapshot of the moment. The artist studies his motifs with such intensity, that each portrait pictures a profile of increasing intimate closeness. Mike finds his models in his everyday life and is not limited on certain types. He portrays young and old, beautiful and dark, fragile and strong people. They are lost in thoughts, show inner conflicts or transmit a unique and sometimes even holy calmness.

Alicia Eggert & Mike Fleming – Eternity

“‘Eternity’ is a wall-mounted scupture made in collaboration with Mike Fleming. It consists of 30 Electric clocks rear-mounted to a large sheet of white acrylic. During installation, the black hour and minute hands of the clocks are aligned to spell the word “eternity”, and the clocks are plussed in to a series of power strips on the floor. The hands begin to move when the switch on the last power strip is flipped, and the word almost immediately becomes a jumble of moving black lines. “Eternity” does not reappear until the hour hands return to their originial positions twelve hours later. And even then, it lasts a mere split second.” – Alicia Eggert
