“Angel Affair” by Michael Parkes stands as a testament to the artist’s ability to weave a rich and imaginative narrative within a single painting. The large and majestic depiction transports viewers to a realm where the boundary between reality and fantasy becomes blurred. The gentle caress between the man and the angel evokes a sense of serenity and calm, while their suspended embrace adds a symbolic layer to the artwork, suggesting a romantic union between the earthly and the divine. 

This scene, crafted with figurative precision and a touch of magical realism, captures a fleeting moment that exudes both peace and romance. Parkes’ artistry allows us to explore the realms of imagination, where time seems to stand still, and the beauty of the moment is preserved in a timeless yet captivating story. “Angel Affair” is a dreamlike journey into the artist’s imaginative world, inviting us to contemplate the mysteries of existence and the interplay between the seen and the unseen. 

“Angel Affair” is a timeless piece of art that ventures into the realms of love, spirituality and the romantic intermingling of the mortal and the divine.

A word from Michael Parkes on “Angel Affair”

“Years ago, while I was trapped in the Zurich airport during a huge snowstorm, I had a rather interesting experience.  Because we could not get to hotels, my fellow travelers and I spent the night sleeping on the floor waiting for the storm to pass.  These were primarily businessmen from all over Europe trying to make their connections home or to their next meeting.  I saw these exhausted men, most in suits, lying like fallen soldiers in some chrome and glass battlefield.

As I fell into a troubled sleep, I dreamed that all these tired business travelers were visited by their angels that held them gently and kissed away their despair and loneliness.  But like many innocent beginnings, one kiss led to another, and the “Angel Affair” idea was born.”
