“The moment before the stars come out… This painting reminds me of a fairytale by the Russian writer Nikolai Gogol “The Night Before Christmas.” All sorts of improbable things happen on that quiet and clear winter night.
Witches fly out of the chimneys on broomsticks taking innocent characters on a flight across a frozen landscape to the Tzar’s Grand Ball… it’s a good kind of magic that happens on this night.”– Alexander Volkov
When visitors walk through the Marcus Ashley Gallery, they’re always enveloped in its warmth and grandeur. The walkways take you through some of the best works of art from sculptures and limited-edition pieces to paintings and canvas prints. As part of the gallery’s rich collection is Alexander Volkov art. The artist’s work is steeped in realism and connects viewers to a deep perspective.
The magic of storytelling comes to life through Clear Nightfall, where the artist draws inspiration from the poem, “The Night Before Christmas.” Volkov paints a serene landscape blanketed in virgin snow. The last traces of the sun’s rays are snuffed out by a blanket of darkness. But a vestige of light still shines through the window of one of the cottages – a beacon of hope perhaps.
This piece captures the essence of childhood nostalgia: bedtime stories filled with immersive illustrations and fascinating characters. Volkov creates the perfect setting of a night open to strange but wonderful shenanigans.
