“Though we have been conditioned to perceive nothing except our own world, this does not mean we cannot enter other realms.” – Michael Parkes


Located in Lake Tahoe, the Marcus Ashley Gallery also displays Michael Parkes art as part of its extensive collection that visitors to the gallery can peruse at leisure. The artist spent a handful of years globe-trotting across Asia and Europe for inspiration and spiritual awakening. As viewers will see, Parkes’s work is a testament to his in-depth study on mythology and spirituality. He creates a world of magic and exquisite beauty where fantastical beasts, whimsical characters, and winged angels coexist in harmony.


In Angel Affair, the artist recreates a classic piece from his collection, inspired by the events that followed a snowstorm in Zurich. He reimagines a lovely angel planting a tender kiss on a mortal’s lips. She’s attempting to take away his loneliness and despair as he is lifted midair in her sweet embrace.


Soft dreamy pastels diffuse the canvas, elevating Parkes’s fascinating narrative. He creates the painting’s classic luminous effect by applying several layers of rich paint onto the surface. Parkes’s artistic brilliance and compelling perception come through in the delicate and precise detailing of Angel Affair. It’s just the kind of painting that would elevate the aesthetics of any room.
