Unlike traditional galleries that often remain disconnected from visitors, the Marcus Ashley Gallery believes in creating strong bonds with customers and clients. Art appreciators enjoy its inviting energy and positive vibes. Feel at home amidst the collections, including Michael Parkes art that will transpose you to serene, strange, yet delightfully remote places.

In The Mask, the artist portrays a woman in ballet shoes enjoying some much-needed alone time away from strict, unrelenting tutors. She hangs up her mask after a taxing day of performing endless pirouettes and pliés. Moments in isolation such as this are what she relishes as much as the hot beverage in her hands.

Fans of Parkes’s work will be familiar with how ballerinas often appear across his collections. The Mask reveals the life of a ballerina as she takes a breather. It’s a refreshing narrative that allows us to savor our private moments amid hectic plans and timetables.

Muted hues of ivory, cream, and beige commingle with pops of red, bronze, and granite to give this litho print a raw finish. In classic Parkes style, the lithograph exudes understated finesse. Introduce a subtle, elegant aesthetic to any space by mounting The Mask on a bare wall.
