Art appreciators and connoisseurs will find that the Marcus Ashley Gallery is a must-visit while on a tour of Lake Tahoe. For visitors who wish to view the collections elsewhere, the patrons of the gallery host private art shows within a 60-mile radius. Besides Michael Parkes art, the gallery can arrange for other exhibits to be displayed at a preferred location. It’s a great way to view the collections in the company of close family, friends, and acquaintances.

In The Sphinx, the artist captures a tame, provocative side to the otherwise malevolent creature. Parkes paints her captivated by a salamander that emerges from a bushel of tulips. Fans of the artist’s work will recall how Parkes believes that salamanders, like other beings, deserve to possess consciousness. It appears as if the lowly salamander enthralled by the mysterious aura of the sphinx has set his eyes and heart on her.

Mellow hues coalesce with smooth lines and contours to capture the energy of this litho print. Parkes reveals an interesting narrative of two unlikely creatures coming together and finding love. The Sphinx serves as a beautiful representation of how trivial our differences are when it comes to matters of the heart.
