“Nick, my youngest boy, and I were on the way home from Peterson’s Farm where we had just bought our Christmas tree when I saw this. I had to get out of the car. I remember standing there in the cold, trying to absorb the color and the quality of light in the sky, listening to Nick honking at me from the car. Peace and quiet…” – Alexander Volkov
Anyone stepping into the Marcus Ashley Gallery is immediately transported to a place that feels like home. The sights, the colors, the art—they all commingle to produce a memorable effect. Alexander Volkov art is a proud addition to the gallery’s welcoming space.
Volkov believes that anyone, whether dead, alive, famous, or regular, is a source of vital inspiration to an artist’s journey. His signature seasonal themes run strong through most of his work, as seen here in December Nightfall.
The artist recounts a glorious moment he bore witness to on his way home from buying a Christmas tree with his son. To saturate his senses with real-time color and light from this scene may have been a challenge. But, the artist uses his inner compass to guide his senses in capturing it with stunning accuracy.
Watch how the parade of colors across the sky melts into dusk. Those few minutes before the sun parts and gives way to the night sky is a sight to behold. This piece will instantly transform a charming or mundane space.
