“We are eternal beings. We journey through life after life, like the cycles of the moon, until we finally find our true selves… we are Home.” – Michael Parkes
Budding collectors and art connoisseurs equally enjoy their time at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. There’s plenty of reading material to browse through to dig deeper into the fascinating world of art. Visitors can learn more about their favorite artists and discover new ones along the way. The gallery displays a fine collection of exhibits that include Michael Parkes art.
Parkes has a knack for building up his compositions into a satisfying climax. In Journey Home, Parkes creates a hypnotic representation of the cycle of life. He shares how humans continue into the afterlife on a quest to find their true selves. The artist paints a young woman seated in a celestial boat, sailing past a sea serpent lurking below the surface. She appears calm and in her element as cosmic forces guide her forward.
Distinct details spring to life in this composition, from the nautical swan figurehead on the bow to the avian-moon hybrid trailing overhead. Journey Home beckons viewers to abandon the familiar and give in to the allure of an alternate reality.
