The Marcus Ashley Gallery showcases some of the world’s best art in one place, and its team is happy to share plenty of insights on the collections. Get to know about the exhibits on display, including Michael Parkes art, intimately by delving into the brilliant stories behind them. The gallery is a one-stop destination for new and avid collectors to explore Parkes’s work in its entirety.
The artist is well-known for revealing bold narratives through his imaginative artwork. Parkes doesn’t sway towards conventional themes and often dabbles with ideas that leave one intrigued.
In Waiting, he draws a graceful pregnant angel with an expression of peace on her face. She sits by a swan and black panther, perhaps counting down the seconds until the birth of her cherub. Parkes imagines angels who experience the joys of motherhood in their part of the universe. Like humans, they raise celestial children and have dreams and hopes of their own.
The artist creates a lovely monochromatic print of subdued pastels and deep tones. Together they draw attention to the angel’s quiet strength and energy.
Waiting will make an interesting conversation starter in a high-end residential or commercial space. Interested buyers can have this litho print custom framed through the gallery.
