“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.” – Alexander Volkov, 2005
For Alexander Volkov art aficionados, Marcus Ashley Gallery is the best venue to find a comprehensive set of the artist’s realism oil paintings. Located south of Lake Tahoe, it is in the good company of ski resorts, hiking trails, spectacular beaches, and gondolas. Volkov has featured its landscapes in several of his works. These pieces are the perfect conversation pieces in transient accommodations and in contemporary homes.
A ski resort was developed on the bluffs just above the Missouri River, and being an avid skier, Volkov did not pass up the chance to dig his poles in its slopes one winter and capture a scene on canvas. The result was Snow Creek, a portrait of leafless trees by a small portion of the body of water not yet covered in frost. Set against a pale pink and baby blue sunset sky, the artist’s trademark interplay between light and dark is unmistakable. A couple of houses in the distance breathe life into the setting, softening the stark contrast of colors.
Snow Creek is a collector edition piece that will create a warm, intriguing vibe in any space.
