Prepare to witness the magic and beauty of some of the world’s most impressive exhibits at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. This brick-and-mortar space is thoughtfully decorated with a mix of works by local, national, and international artists. Fans of magic realism will find that the Michael Parkes art on display is worth exploring at length.
Step into the artist’s world where time ceases to exist, and beauty thrives in every corner. Parkes creates a heavenly space where creatures and beings of the cosmos commune in harmony. His evocative work appears as the pièce de résistance in several upscale homes and establishments worldwide.
Summer Swans is the very definition of tranquility and absolute bliss as experienced in an otherworldly plain. A maiden lies sprawled out on the ground, seemingly without a care in the world, even as her guard stands watch. With her feline and swans by her side, she revels in the beauty of the season. The feel of the warm sunshine and the smell of fresh air seem almost palpable.
Parkes fills this litho print with subtle sketch marks that reveal the initial stages of a work in motion. To create an intriguing contrast, the artist fills only one side of the print with ink, leaving the other side bare. It’s as if he wants viewers to imagine what the rest of Summer Swans will look like from their perspective.
