"In the course of preparing many Imaginary Realism exhibitions and publications, I encounter hundreds of art works in the genre. Time and time again, Michael Parkes manages to surprise me. His recent work shows a new mastery. His compositions are extremely powerful and sophisticated; even a detail from one of his paintings could remain a free-standing work of art. We cannot pass by one of his new works without stopping in wonder. This magnetic allure can only be evoked by the truly great Masters, and Parkes is one of them. His place in art history is now being established."
