“The reeds in the marshes turn golden as the sun sets behind the mountains and the faraway sky grows pale…

End of day and end of Summer at South Lake Tahoe.” – Alexander Volkov

The Marcus Ashley Gallery in Lake Tahoe is a frequent haunt for art collectors and curious visitors. This mammoth brick-and-mortar space curates art by some of the world’s greatest artists. It takes pride in also being home to Alexander Volkov art, a much sought-after collection that captures realism at its best.

From Einstein and Tarkovsky to Edward Hopper and Maxfield Parrish, Volkov draws inspiration from several prolific figures. After studying physics for 8 years at Leningrad State University, the artist picked up on the intricacies of light and how it plays a significant role in bringing art to life. Disappearing Light is the perfect example of how Volkov interprets light in interesting ways.

The marshes in this piece appear like fluffy green clouds on land with reeds that sway to the tune of a gentle breeze. Using sweeping brushstrokes and an enthusiastic hand, the artist paints the overcast sky and mountains in the distance with grace.

The rich composition carries a flourish of earthy tones that give it a fresh perspective. Disappearing Light can be viewed at leisure and is also available for purchase at the Marcus Ashley Gallery.
