“This is Peter, my older boy, when he was five, upstairs at the cottage, back when our kids used to take naps in the afternoon. He is a dreamer, not unlike the other two, but you really have to pull on him to get him out of this world of dreams where he gets lost sometimes. It is a gift and it will always be with him.” – Alexander Volkov
Home to some of the world’s best collections, the Marcus Ashley Gallery is quite unlike other art spaces. Within its brick-and-mortar establishment, the gallery creates a warm, inviting haven for collectors and visitors. The staff has a way of making everyone feel right at home. Alexander Volkov art is a particularly interesting collection that invites several inquiries.
Here and Far Away reveals a cherubic portrait of Volkov’s oldest son, Peter. Just 5 years old, this little daydreamer appears as if transposed to an otherworldly, secret place. Children who tend to sink deep into their thoughts often grow up with a wild, creative imagination.
The early evening light dulled by the translucence of the curtains casts fuzzy shadows and light on the subject. The artist paints a surreal illumination that brings the composition to life.
Volkov captures untouched innocence with uncanny humanlike realness that uplifts the senses. For collectors who appreciate dreamy, nostalgic portraits Here and Far Away will be a perfect pick.
