Michael Parkes' artwork Conquering Daemons consists of a set of two Mixed Media Prints with gold. The set is called Conquering Daemons but the images are separately called Angel Dust and The Touch.
Artist Michael Parkes says about Conquering Daemons: "We all have our daemons to conquer, whether they be on a personal or collective level. Gentleness and stillness will do more to conquer daemons than vibrating with their aggression and anger."
A word from Marcel Salome: "Conquering Daemons is a very special limited-edition for me. One of the most valuable I've ever made with Parkes and one wherein new and old techniques really come together. Firstly, the original paintings, each of which was made in another period, had to get a uniform expression and feel so they visually fit better together as a set. Together with Parkes we added digital elements in a very natural way. The printing technique is a combination of giclee printing combined with traditional screen printing. In the giclee we made a layer with a golden hue. Over this we printed two layers of two different colors of gold using the screen printing technique. A major challenge to get right and register properly because of the German Etching paper which is very sensitive to moisture and temperature and stretches and shrinks fast. During my career as a master printer for Parkes this is one of the finest editions I'v e ever made with my studio Re-Art."
