“The dark and dangerous panther sits in the calm atmosphere of the loving angel. ” – Michael Parkes
The Marcus Ashley Gallery makes different art forms accessible to the public. As a beautiful form of self-expression, art has a transformative effect on those who appreciate it. Satiate your appetite for art by viewing the fantastic works of artists that embody several influences. For fans of realism art (that holds an undercurrent of fantasy), look no further than Michael Parkes art.
In Black Panther White Wings, the artist demonstrates how a powerful, often temperamental animal becomes tame in the presence of an angel. She sits in a playful position, beckoning the panther to come closer. Save for a pair of black stockings, the angel is stark naked except for golden ribbons intertwined in her fiery red hair that create a lovely contrast against her mighty wings.
The artist uses a striking balance of deep blacks and soft pastels to portray an ethereal composition. Parkes gives us a peek into an alternative universe where angels coexist with domesticated beasts. Black Panther White Wings is perfect for collectors who enjoy the extraordinary finesse of magic realism paintings.
