In this drawing, you see a young guardian with her three young Quetzals insuring the continuation of the Mayan magic. The main challenge is that mistakes cannot be erased. With contemporary photo lithography, by contrast, one is really talking not about a creative process but about reproduction by mechanical means. Since then he has been making three to four new lithograph editions a year and now the complete collection of his lithographs comprises more than seventy different images. Many of the original Michael Parkes sketches on vellum have been worked out in detail, and furnished with oil paint.

The magic and knowledge of the Mayans was as high as any that has existed on earth. The stone lithography process entails transferring an image multiple times where the registration has to be exact. All Rights Reserved. Michael Parkes uses quite a different process for printing his work. He was involved in the development of this car named F, where "F" stands for Filipinetti, the car's ownerwhich proved to be very fast, winning a non-championship race at VallelungaRome ahead of the Jo Siffert Porsche K. In limiting our perceptions to suit our individuality, we miss the vastness of other perceptions and the doors they represent.

The printers Parkes works with were taught by the master that printed Kokoschka, Giacometti and Leger. Together in the 's, Michael and Maria set off on a spiritual journey where they found excellent teachers and a lifelong passion for India. The ink is controlled in small quantities during printing to maintain a balanced edition. Michael Parkes has studied deeply in esoteric doctrine of the East and the West, and his imagery is drawn from a range of wisdoms including the Cabalistic and the Tantric, but embodied in forms from his own imagination which are immediately accessible. When the basic design is drawn and each new element is added to the stone, a portion of the original drawing is destroyed. A characteristic of modern vellum is that it is translucent.

These reproductions are often of very high quality, but they are nonetheless only reproductions. Throughout his career, numerous international exhibitions underline the importance of Parkes' work.

What makes the lithographic process possible is the principle that oil and water do not mix. Steltman Editions also released 30 different prints on heavy stock.

This guarantees the limited number of the edition. This has resulted in "Masterworks on Vellum" that are indistinguishable from the real drawings on vellum when framed. Velum however is not like paper and it takes a different technique of drawing to slowly build up the subtle colors.

But all of these, though Parkes has undoubtedly observed them, have been absorbed into an entirely modern sensibility. Now that I had an ever increasing demand for the drawings, I ran into a unique and somewhat paradoxical situation.
