“The air smells of melting snow and black earth. The ice is loosening its grip on the creeks and the rivers, the trees are waking up.

Spring is coming.” – Alexander Volkov

The Marcus Ashley Gallery houses fine art from several renowned artists such as Michelangelo, Dr. Suess, Todd White, and Steve Barton. Alexander Volkov art has frequently been the subject of interest of those who visit the gallery.

Volkov is a self-taught artist who grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia, before moving to the United States. The artist exercises a unique perspective on light and shadows that forms the foundation of his realism art.

In Half Hour Before Spring, Volkov depicts the parting of winter with the arrival of spring. As the temperature climbs, the ice sheets start to melt and disappear. The trees stretch and break free from the cold stiffness. Nature’s anticipation for spring is palatable.

Volkov deftly captures the transformational beauty of the changing seasons, a recurring theme in many of his pieces.

Using a blend of sunset hues and dark tones, the artist draws attention to the raw beauty of this scene. Half Hour Before Spring is available for purchase at the Marcus Ashley Gallery.
