art blog - Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison - Empty Kingdom
Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison  are a married couple who have been collaborating for about 20 years creating fine art photographs. Robert is originally from Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri and Shana is from Tulsa, Oklahoma. They now both live and work out of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Their work narrows in on the relationship between Humans and the Environment which surrounds them. Pillaged landscapes scarred by human excess are portrayed in ParkeHarrisons photogravure, collaged and printed works. The realisticy unreal photographs are brilliant interpretations of how human behavior has a direct effect on the environment.

EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013

TOP 100 2013
[Photo by: Shelbie Dimond] 939 is the magic number for EK in 2013. 939 only has 4 factors: 1, 3, 313, 939...which doesn't really have any significant meaning relating to our TOP 100. AMD made a CPU called the Socket 939 back in June 2004...but we're not sponsored by them nor any other computer tech company to supply us with the machines that we need to run EK. The year 939 in Roman numerals is CMXXXIX...which doesn't mean crap since none of us use Roman numerals anymore. According to HistoryOrb.com, 4 major events took place in year 939 that were documented: July 8th (The Major Occultation, or Ghaybat el-Kubra of Muhammad al-Mahdi), August 6th (Battle at Simancas - Spain beats Moors), October 2nd (Battle at Andernach: King Otto & Hermann of Zwaben beat Eberhard of France & Giselbert of Lutherans), October 27th (Edmund I succeeds Athelstan as King of England)...which all has nothing to do with EK. Nonetheless, 939 is the exact number of posts we had to sift through for 2013 in order to bring to all of you art-fiends our fourth annual EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013!
