Master painter, sculptor, and lithographer Michael Parkes, fashions a world of fantasy where the laws of earthly reality are abolished, and space and time enter into their own motionless communion. What is unusual about Michael Parkes is that in his images metaphysical and spiritual elements are joined into reality. His work evokes a mysterious atmosphere, which can often only be deciphered with the help of ancient mythology and eastern philosophy.
"Take the symbolism for what it is. It is not important to understand or even agree with the symbols I use. What I do want is to offer my art to people to enjoy and enhance their lives with the beauty of colour and light." [Michael Parkes]
