Art Angels present the new series of works ‘Healing Beauty’ from painter Mike Dargas. With this show Dargas explores the fragility and feminine aspects of identity. The composition of Dargas’ portraiture presents an underlying interest in the covering or coating of the skin by liquid. The lifelike element can be seen within the pose of the sitters, often in movement, with drips suspended in time. Thus, the paintings, resemble the photographic medium capturing the ephemeral beauty. As Mike Dargas says, “My paintings are trying to catch an emotional snapshot and are trying to evoke a certain feeling to the viewer”.
