The Dingo Did It 1a by popart artist Merry Sparks

The Dingo Did It No 1a

Contemporary Australian Legend has it that a dingo stole and killed a 9 week old baby at Uluru.  Without doubt, it was proven that the dingo really did take the baby, but a percentage of the public remain unconvinced. From Asia, it arrived in Australia about 5,000 years ago and it remains a resilient natural […]

The Dingo Did It No 20

Contemporary Australian Legend has it that a dingo stole and killed a 9 week old baby named “Azaria” at Uluru.  Without doubt, it was proven that the dingo really did take the baby, but a percentage of the public remain unconvinced.

Lagomorpha-Leporidae-Bunny by Merry Sparks

Lagomorpha, Leporidae, Bunny

What are we doing to our environment? Do we have too much of an influence over the slow destruction of our beautiful world? Why is it that as the most intelligent species, we leave behind a trail of destruction in our wake? One day we might self-implode. I have too many questions and no tangible […]

Pop Art Skullduggery No 2 by Australian Artist Merry Sparks

Skullduggery No 2

There seems to be a fascination with skulls, particularly since Andy Warhol painted his Skull series and now every Pop-Artist and his dog is painting them.  So thinking outside the square,  here’s an interesting twist –  a carved Asian antelope’s skull – it’s not quite so menacing. How can something so macabre become so beautiful […]

The Cold Room by Merry Sparks

The Cold Room No 1

I am deeply offended and mortified by the butchering of innocent victims – people and animals – by minority groups which are death cults using “religion” as a guise for their barbaric, abhorrent activities.  This barbarism is a global terrorist threat. In this painting, the first of the series called “The Cold Room”, the slaughter of people is […]

Australian pig head oil painting by artist Merry Sparks from The Cold Room No 3 - Who Is The Victim?

The Cold Room No 3 – Who Is The Victim?

It seems we tolerate the slaughter of animals to satisfy our hunger and ultimately our survival, but do we stop to think that these beasts feel every bit of pain, emotion and suffering that humans do? The pig’s head with its identity undisclosed symbolises the victimisation of all peace-loving beasts, including the majority of us. […]

The Dingo Did It No 1 popart painting by Australian artist Merry Sparks

The Dingo Did It No 1

Contemporary Australian Legend has it that a dingo stole and killed a 9 week old baby called Azaria Chamberlain at Ayers Rock/Uluru.  Without doubt, it was proven that the dingo really did take the baby, but a percentage of the public remain unconvinced. From Asia, it arrived in Australia about 5,000 years ago and it remains […]

The Owl And The Pussycat by Merry Sparks

The Owl And The Pussycat

Are you familiar with the silly little poem “The Owl And The Pussycat” by Edward Lear?  Here’s the first verse: The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea    In a beautiful pea-green boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money,    Wrapped up in a five-pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above,    And sang […]

Australia Zoo and Merry Sparks Australian Pop Art paintings

Australia Zoo

I adore our Australian animals, and I adore my visits to Australia Zoo for BIG photography days.  I’ve been in amongst some pretty cute, adorable, furry animals but Australia Zoo worships a few slippery reptiles and the mighty big Croc too.  I’ll keep to the other side of the fence from these thanks. For an awesome, […]

I See Red by Merry Sparks
