“Diana, Goddess of the Hunt. She is the embodiment of feminine strength, beauty, athletic grace, and courage. Her legend is older than Ancient Greek and the Vedic scriptures. But what does she hunt? She is the energy of the stars, shooting her arrows through the heavens. She hunts the Darkness of the Night.” – Michael Parkes
Lake Tahoe leaves a lasting impression on those who get to witness its unmarred beauty. It’s no wonder why this place serves as an idyllic location for the Marcus Ashley Gallery. Novice and seasoned collectors enjoy the collections on display, including Michael Parkes art. The artist takes viewers on a subconscious journey that explores the realms of magic and fantasy.
The daughter of Latona and Jupiter, Diana was a Roman goddess who represented wild animals, virgins, and forests and worshipped by men and women hoping for a successful hunt. The fictional comic book character Wonder Woman is named after the goddess and portrays a woman with similar traits of a skilled, free-spirited huntress.
Parkes paints a powerful depiction of the goddess in the middle of a hunt as seen in Butterfly Effect. Her bow is positioned perfectly as her trained eye targets her prey. Diana’s hunting dog sits by her side both still and waiting, poised on a precipice. The artist approaches Butterfly Effect with technical artistry to produce a surreal depiction of his imaginative renderings. Layered wisps of color, delicate textures, and steady brushstrokes reveal Diana in all her glory.
