There’s much to see and experience within the brick-and-mortar walls of the Marcus Ashley Gallery. Immerse your senses in Michael Parkes art, which embodies stunning dreamscapes and esoteric themes of philosophy and symbolism.

In Running the Bath, a goddess indulges in a cleansing session under the heavens. The help is respectfully blindfolded as he pours water into the celestial tub. Parkes injects a fantastical narrative of a less than ordinary ritual as the goddess bathes in her winged bathtub with the humanoid face. It’s as if, at any moment, the tub will take flight into the skies as the woman continues to bathe in luxury.

The artist relies on a classic range of hues from icy blues and ivory whites to creamy beiges and metallic golds. Rich tones diffuse the composition with a stark realness that will transfix viewers for several minutes. The artist defies the rules of reality to give us a glimpse into a world that’s waiting to be discovered.

Running the Bath can be custom framed through the gallery’s expert staff. Mount this powerful piece in any room to complement a soothing aesthetic.
