Witness the artistic brilliance of emerging and well-established sculptors, lithographers, and painters at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. Michael Parkes art is part of its growing repertoire of fine collections. The artist’s work embodies fantastical, mythological themes with relatable narratives and has been sourced by upscale commercial establishments such as restaurants, modern libraries, luxury boutiques, and hotels.
In Reflections, Parkes relies on a rich palette of hues from gold and bronze to ivory and amber. Parkes paints the woman like he does his other subjects, with careful brushstrokes that leave behind a luminescent finish. He exacts his prowess through precise brushwork by delicately layering paint on the medium, capturing the fair maiden’s side profile, underscoring her delicate, pretty features. Pearls, satin, and jewels adorn her lovely red hair. Parkes’ close-up of his female subject fills most of his compositions in different captivating forms and roles. In this painting, he paints her in a contemplative mood.
Reflections is a lovely piece to add to one’s growing private collection. The gallery is home to other works by Parkes that deserve to be mounted on a wall of their own.
