About Alexander Volkov

There is mystery and longing in the heart of Alexander Volkov’s paintings. In his depictions of a mythic and timeless rural America there is a world full of change where
the past meets the present, nature takes over from man, day turns into night and the seasons seem always to be sliding one into another. The power of these haunting
scenes is their ability to draw the viewer into an imaginary yet familiar landscape or environment, where time moves more slowly and the distractions and irritation of modern life are unknown.

Alexander says of his work: “There is no greater mystery to me than the conflict of light and darkness. In the way they clash and penetrate each other, there is the source of
everything. Whether I paint a landscape, a still-life or a portrait, within it there is always a story of light traveling through darkness.”

In the early 1970’s Alexander began painting with oils as a high school student in St. Petersburg Russia continuing throughout his study of Physics at the Department of Leningrad State University. In 1989 he immigrated to America and in stark contrast to the cityscapes and views of the rooftops of St.Petersburg, he began painting the beauty of rural America, the place he has now regarded as home for over 30 years.

He reluctantly refers to himself as a self-taught artist saying “If you want to learn, you will always find someone to learn from; Be they dead or alive, great or unknown. You will learn from everything you see and hear around you – if you are willing to pay attention. Perhaps, during my formative years, I have made a lot of unnecessary mistakes, but at the same time I have had the enormous advantage of picking my own teachers”…and they have included ; William Turner, Franz Hals, Rembrandt, Edward Hopper, Maxfield Parrish and Andrew Wyeth, Beethoven, Satie, Nabokov and Steinbeck, Einstein and Tarkovsky. They were university friends, physics professors and struggling artists.

An important facet of Alexander’s subject matter is born out of collaboration with those who commission him to paint their inspiration. These relationships are unique and
critical to Alexander’s artistic landscape and he finds great joy and depth in furnishing each collector with their very own vision.

Amid the wildness of 2020, Alexander turned 60. Those two colliding events afforded him the opportunity to dive into his long time aspiration of exploring sculpture. He had felt destined for this challenge for many years and in July 2020, at Marcus Ashley Gallery, he unveiled his first marble infused polymer clay piece; Eternal Love< Two hands capturing the essence of his evolution as a person, husband and artist.

Alexander lives in Frenchtown, NJ with his wife, business partner and composer Heidi Breyer and they have a collective brood of 5 adult children!

Note about His Work:
Alexander creates landscape oil paintings, mixed media originals, charcoal drawings and genre paintings. He is available for commissions, portraits and any other subject
matter that is inspiring to both collector and himself! Alexander is a self-published artist with his company Alexander Volkov Fine Art which offers a vast portfolio of Limited Editions and Collector’s Edition Giclees on Canvas, based on his original works. Alexander Volkov Fine Art LLC prints and varnishes all pieces, and Alexander (himself)
embellishes, signs and numbers every piece.

Questions Answered

Alexander’s originals when published as limited editions are released as either Signed and Numbered (S/N) & Artist Proof Editions (A/P) or as a small Collectors Edition.

Signed and Numbered Editions (S/N) – Giclee reproductions of the original artwork. These are hand-signed and numbered by the artist.

Artist Proof Editions (A/P) – Smaller edition size (fewer released) than the signed and numbered edition. The Artist Proof prints feature Alexander’s additional hand-enhancement on the print. The additional hand painting gives these prints the look and feel of the original paintings.

Collectors Editions– Images that are personally meaningful and special to the artist. Collector Editions are only released in numbers of 1-25.

Yes, Alexander can assist with custom sizes within a 6″ range if you need to fit a particular space.

Yes, Alexander has a trained eye and will use his own photography as reference photos for his original paintings.

Alexander’s works will serve as a focal point of light in your home no matter the lighting conditions. Additionally, as natural lighting changes throughout the day, the artwork will mimic the sun’s transition in the painted scenes.

The literal meaning of Alla Prima is “at first try.” It is essentially a study done through the use of faster drying paints, larger brushes and a more impasto texture. This method allows Alexander to revisit techniques of his youth, resulting in works of art with more passion and intensity. The artist is creating a slightly more impressionistic aesthetic, and with his ability of fast painting, he is able to offer originals at a more accessible price point. The Alla Prima originals are not published in limited editions.

Alexander is now taking his incredibly detailed technique to the world of sculpture. Eternal Love and The Rose are the three-dimensional works to date.

Alexander’s work includes stunning landscape oil paintings, charcoal drawings, mixed media originals, genre paintings, and, more recently, sculpture. His company, Alexander Volkov Fine Art, features a vast portfolio of his own work, including limited editions and Collector’s Edition canvas giclees, based on his original works.

All the pieces below are printed and varnished by Alexander Volkov Fine Art LLC. Each one is hand embellished, signed and numbered by Alexander himself. His work catalog is available in its entirety here at Marcus Ashley Gallery.

Originals

A Volkov original draws you in until you’re absorbed in its enigma. Each piece strives to communicate a story without forcing a narrative. Ultimately, what you take away from Alexander Volkov’s art is often a product of your own perspective and his vision. His originals are also available as limited editions, smaller Collectors’ Editions or, more selectively, as an Alla Prima.
