The Marcus Ashley Gallery showcases Michael Parkes art, a fine collection of magic realism paintings, sculptures, and litho prints. Through his work, the artist invites us to imaginative plains far away from the ordinary and familiar. You’ll be enthralled by what you see in Parkes’s world, one where angels, goddesses, and powerful creatures coexist. Do visit the gallery in Lake Tahoe to view and marvel at his magnificent work.
Parkes is one of a few artists who still create stone lithographs. A painstaking process, lithography involves the use of special inks and solutions to create prints. The artist has maintained an intimate affair with stone lithography for over 40 years.
In A Gift for the Disillusioned Man, Parkes portrays an angel attempting to comfort a man coming to terms with difficult truths. She holds a flower behind her slender back as she gently coaxes him to accept her gift.
The artist employs a vintage finish through varying tonal intensities of cream, eggshell, and ivory. Deeper tones fill the man’s suit and faintly occupy a few details of the angel’s features.
Parkes reveals the delicate beauty of a lithograph that brings his subjects to life. A Gift for the Disillusioned Man is perfect for a room with a contemporary aesthetic.
