“It seemed like just yesterday that I started the first painting that turned into a cycle of paintings I called Winter Rose. Each one was different but held the same contemplation about the passage of time and how fleeting the most beautiful moments in our life can be.
One by one, these roses ended up on the stone window sill of my attic studio where they are still together to this day – a memory of so many things and years gone by.” – Alexander Volkov
Lake Tahoe tourists and art enthusiasts will enjoy exploring the collections, including Alexander Volkov art, at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. This brick-and-mortar space is a haven of art that many enthusiastically visit every year. The staff and art consultants of the gallery are well-known for their hospitality, services, and knowledge of the art.
Volkov’s ability to weave a story through his paintings comes naturally. In Remembrance, the artist uses delicate, restrained brushstrokes to capture the fragility of dried roses.
The artist used several roses as part of his Winter Rose series which he collected one by one on the window sill after he was done. By the end of it, Volkov recounts how, like the roses, life’s moments are short-lived. Unlike the surety of daylight that never fails to return, the roses don’t reappear in full bloom.
While this may conjure feelings of sadness, it is with bittersweet nostalgia that one must remember life’s events. The artist offers a simple yet deep analogy of what life is all about. Remembrance is the sort of piece one would enjoy viewing at length when pondering the mysteries of life.
