by Jane KenoyerPosted on


Artist Dan McPharlin’s science fiction machines are delightful miniature representations of analog computers that were considered vanguard technology around the 1950s and 1960s. These tiny replicas are complete with toggle switches, rainbow wires, and manually operated instruments. McPharlin’s idyllic science fiction inspired paintings cover a large range of inspiration. The artist blends neo-classical imagery reminiscent of the American painter Maxfield Parrish with symbolism from the 1970s; the era that Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon poster was created.
