“There are Devas (an ancient Vedic term for divine beings) who create everything from the smallest insect to entire solar systems. After the creations are complete, they continue to guide and watch over their creations. However, in the beginning, things can be a little chaotic until each heavenly body finds its right place!” – Michael Parkes
The Marcus Ashley Gallery is home to an exhaustive collection of stunning fine art. These works are by artists from not just in and around California but overseas, too. Besides the fantastic Michael Parkes art on display, visitors will be thrilled to explore the works of Michelangelo, Dr. Seuss, Alexsandra Rozenvain, and Steve Barton.
Parkes relies heavily on esoteric themes of mysticism, mythology, and philosophy. His interpretation of imaginative and mythical subjects has been compared to surrealists of the past, such as Dali. In Moon Thief, the artist paints a divine being overseeing the cosmic elements of the skies. She looks unamused when a mischievous celestial creature attempts to fly away with the moon.
Parkes injects humor into this fantastical narrative of a mystical deva trying to keep heavenly bodies in their rightful places. Rich and muted tones create an enigmatic portrayal of metaphysical forces at work. Moon Thief will serve as the perfect conversation starter for those who enjoy collecting magic realism art.
