“There is no greater mystery to me than the conflict of light and dark. 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.” – Alexander Volkov
The Marcus Ashley Gallery is the proud host of an impressive Alexander Volkov art collection. Volkov is a prolific creator, having painted hundreds of illustrations with themes ranging from seasons, sunsets, and seas, to still life and cityscapes. With his breathtaking, realistic style, the artist’s work is ushered in homes, fine-dining restaurants, and hotel lobbies as an elegant focal point.
Volkov’s signature trope of depicting the play between light and dark is evident in this piece entitled Autumn Rose. It invites the viewer to contemplate the distinctly cool fall sunshine lending a somber atmosphere to the setting. The contrast between soft pink and stark black demonstrates the intensity of his passionate strokes. Indeed, Volkov is a poet of the canvas.
Autumn Rose is a profound epitome of a picture painting a thousand words. One can almost hear the breeze that causes the flower’s petals to disengage from the stalk, symbolizing the shedding of the old as another year approaches its end. This magnificent rendition belongs to a Collectors Edition of only 25 pieces. It is available at the onsite and online displays of Marcus Ashley Gallery and can be shipped anywhere in the world.
