“Summer solstice, the shortest night of the year. They say that on this night, also known as Saint John’s Eve, strange things happen. I, myself, have never seen nymphs and spirits coming out of the lakes and woods to dance in the moonlight, but simple things do seem to acquire very special meanings.” – Alexander Volkov
For Alexander Volkov art aficionados, the Marcus Ashley Gallery is a fantasy fulfilled. Nestled within its 4400 sq. ft. showroom is one of the largest assemblies of the artist’s Collectors Edition paintings. A significant portion of the collection is made up of natural landscapes from rural America. These prints will add elegance to the plain walls of any urban dwelling or vacation destination.
St. John’s Eve is Volkov’s elucidation of the rural American landscape in June. Light asserts its rightful place in the gray sky with dignity and grace. This interplay is one of the artist’s trademarks, one that he applies with unrivaled dexterity. In the evening prior to the celebration of St. John’s nativity, people gather around bonfires for summer Christmas. But nature has other plans, as the master of Realism so aptly paints on this canvas. It is a day to unfold the green splendor of treetops and display the calm of a lake’s crystal waters. Indeed, the summer solstice is afoot and brilliantly portrayed in
St. John’s Eve!
