The patrons of the Marcus Ashley Gallery establish long-lasting ties with clients and customers. They hold high regard for the people they interact with, making the gallery’s staff highly reputable for their unique, thoughtful approach. When you visit, do not miss out on the opportunity to view the Michael Parkes art on display, which carries strong Eastern philosophy and ancient mythological influences.
Black panthers feature in several ancient scripts from Indian and Greek to Native American and Egyptian. The cougar is probably the most mystical creature in history that symbolizes feminine energy and the dark side of the moon.
Many regard the powerful feline as a symbol of death, darkness, and rebirth. Hence, a primitive fear exists towards cougars. In Meditation, Parkes paints an angel resting her forehead against a majestic cougar’s chest. Its shiny black coat, bejeweled wings, and strong features are animated through distinct and strong brushstrokes.
The woman appears to be deriving strength and peace from the panther. It’s as if the feline has always served as protector and confidante, which is clear from the energy and companionship the pair exude. The artist strikes a perfect balance of value, form, and proportion in Meditation.
