“The power of the new moon, and the beauty of the earth bathed in moonlight are very difficult subjects to portray in a painting, much less a sculpture. In Moonstruck, the sleeping angel represents the dappled calm of the night sky. She holds a shining moon in her hand while the North Star shimmers under her wing.” – Michael Parkes
Prepare to be awestruck by the fine collections on display, including Michael Parkes art, at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. The artist’s impressive oeuvre fills the spacious walkway of the gallery, beckoning visitors to step into unknown, magical worlds. Parkes is highly regarded for his methodical mastery behind the brush and his careful attention to detail.
Moonstruck demonstrates the artist’s brilliant, imaginative interpretation of cosmic beings embracing their natural habitat. In this drawing, an angel cradles a crescent moon in one hand as she slumbers. Amidst a sea of stars with a new moon in full view is where she feels safe and at home.
In Moonstruck, Parkes relies on soft grey tones against the velveteen, ivory surface of German etching paper. This medium provides the perfect surface to bring his subjects to life through precise brush flicks and soft hues.
