“This is my favorite time of day when the sun is just about to disappear below the horizon. The shadows grow longer by the minute and the light in the sky is fading away. Amidst the solitude, the day is turning into night.” – Alexander Volkov

Marcus Ashley Fine Art Gallery extends an open invitation to city dwellers, art collectors, and hotel owners to delve into its vast assemblage of Alexander Volkov art. Natural landscape enthusiasts who frequent the showroom affirm the power of the artist’s oil paintings to bestow a feeling of calm and tranquility on harried residents and guests. His paintings will also brighten up any plain and bare wall.

Volkov is passionate about illustrating the passage of time as each season brings forth its own litany of traditions. In Rites of Spring, for example, he pays tribute to the role played by old trees in signifying the return of life after winter hibernation. Even before the first leaves appear, a stout and sturdy trunk already serves as a welcoming home to migrating birds. Rites of Spring is a testament to the artist’s expert brushwork, capturing the change in the brightness of the skylight that is unique to spring.
