“I give you my heart. Life is as fleeting as the flutter of butterfly wings. But my gift is strong and will last lifetimes.” – Michael Parkes
Visitors to the Marcus Ashley Gallery are always blown away by its 4400 square ft. interiors and welcoming atmosphere. This brick-and-mortar establishment has been in the business for over 18 years and curates an impressive fine art collection. It deserves to be on your bucket list of must-visit places in Lake Tahoe. When you stop by the gallery, be sure to treat your senses to the Michael Parkes art.
Parkes creates an air of intrigue in I Give You My Heart. The artist paints the woman with quintessential features that run across many of his works—blue eyes, tightly coiled hair, rosy cheeks, and porcelain skin. In this piece, she holds up a burning card with a heart on it. It’s the artist’s depiction of passionate love that endures many lifetimes.
The Chinese consider butterflies to be symbolic of marital bliss and eternal love. Many cultures, such as the Japanese and Native Americans, regard the delicate creatures as symbols of spirituality. Parkes is known for his underlying symbolic representations of life, death, hope, and love. I Give You My Heart offers a thought-provoking adaptation of how the artist sees love.
