The Marcus Ashley Gallery is a colossal brick-and-mortar establishment situated in Heavenly Village, Lake Tahoe. Many visitors mistake this establishment for a museum, thanks to its spacious, brightly lit walkways. The gallery is a welcoming space open to visitors from all walks of life. If visitors have queries on the gallery’s Michael Parkes art, the expert consultants can shed light on the artist’s work.
In 1970, drawn to explore the mystical, mythical, and philosophical aspects of different cultures, Parkes toured India, Nepal, and Pakistan. According to Vedic literature, Devas are celestial, god-like beings and an essential part of Indian mythology. They make up the deities that represent different aspects of the universe. Some are represented as beings with immense power, as forces of nature, or advocates of moral values.
In Deva’s Garden, Parkes portrays a pair of deities in an otherworldly space of indescribable beauty. They appear at peace much like the realms they watch over.
Parkes is known to produce his paintings in an unhurried manner. Every piece is meticulously painted with deep tones before brighter hues are introduced.
It is what separates the artist from others who focus on creating large-volume collections in a short period. In Deva’s Garden, the artist creates a striking balance of form and value, giving the scene a lifelike composition.
