“She covers her eyes and waits for the first rays of the sun. If they thought she would see them, they would not appear. She starts to play, the melody bringing them closer until they are next to her. She has played for them many times and even though she will never see them, she hears their songs joining her melody, telling her of their dreams and sorrows.” – Michael Parkes

In Greek mythology, sirens were mermaids who lured sailors towards rugged coasts through hypnotic singing. In Morning Song, a young girl is seen playing a string instrument with her eyes blindfolded. Her sweet melody fills the salty air with a haunting beauty that beckons sirens to join her in song. The artist shares a mystifying narrative where the mermaids only come near when the girl can’t see them.
Parkes uses highly pigmented tones of rich browns, teal, and icy blues, intensified by the application of several coats of paint. The artist employs steady, light brushstrokes that introduce an almost tactile finish. Translucent waters and grainy rock faces invite viewers to come closer to experience this painting’s all-consuming effect. Morning Song is a piece that will leave an indelible impression on a viewer’s senses.
