Nothing comes close to the revelatory experience of viewing art in a place like the Marcus Ashley Gallery. Here is where the works of local and international artists are revered and celebrated. Besides its grand collections of Michael Parkes art, the gallery also displays the work of emerging artists.
Parkes’s fascination for facets of Indian mythology comes to the fore in Dragonfly Deva. A ravishing goddess sits by the pool of a palatial edifice in the company of slumbering lionesses. Parkes paints a dragonfly perched on the goddess’s finger as she admires its fragile beauty. Using visual depth and symmetry, the artist captures an ordinary yet beautiful day in the life of a goddess.
Dreamy pastels and rich variations of grey, brown, and beige coalesce to create a texturally brilliant piece of work. The artist invites us to step into a different plane where deities enjoy life’s little pleasures with some of nature’s wildest beasts. Create a soothing space in any room with Dragonfly Deva, a Parkes classic that will be a lovely distraction.
