“John Bartik is the name of the old guy who showed up when I knocked on the door of this house once. It seemed as if the man, the house, and the tree have become one thing, firmly rooted in the ground, the three of them going through the change of seasons not depending on anybody but each other, not expecting anybody to be there but themselves.” – Alexander Volkov
The patrons of the Marcus Ashley Gallery have made art an integral part of their lives for over 18 years. Alexander Volkov art is part of the gallery’s growing collection and a favorite of buyers from around the world and country.
Drawing inspiration from the works of Beethoven, Einstein, Rembrandt, and Edward Hopper, Volkov is always ripe with new ideas. The art community hails his work as some of the best representations of naturalism.
Fall Of The Patriarch is the artist’s depiction of his meeting with a man named John Bartik. Volkov recounts how it appeared as if the man, the tree in the backyard, and the house were a single living, breathing entity. Volkov captures this intriguing symbiotic relationship through a rich composition of autumn hues and muted shades of whites, blues, and browns.
He marries a picturesque location with an engaging perspective to weave a compelling story. Fall Of The Patriarch is an interesting conversation starter that will look right at home in a public or private space. This painting and other works of the artist are available at the Marcus Ashley Gallery.
