I really love Robert Pakeharrison's work as he creates surreal but also quite sinister scenes. When reading A clockwork orange I imagined it to be quite odd as soon as the Korova Milkbar was mentioned, what formed a link most between A clockwork orange and Pakeharrisons work is the scene where Alex goes to the milk bar for the first time after being released from prison, he has a hallucination or 'trip' where he sees what he describes a huge silver light and visions of gods angels in bronze. This imagery made me think about Pakeharrisons work particularly 'Guardian' the way that the branches form a creepy tangled looking pair of wings. His work is quite dark but also quite beautiful which I really like. The way in which Anthony Burgess' words are quite dark but can also create really beautiful imagery.
