“To me, this is the most beautiful city in the world. I found it striking and very saddening to see the streets desolate with trash blown and storefronts boarded up. And yet the morning sunlight brings it back to life and reminds me that it was built against all odds, on steep hills facing the ocean and it will survive and thrive again.” – Alexander Volkov
The Marcus Ashley Gallery curates fine art such as sculptures, limited-edition pieces, oil paintings, and print canvases, to name a few. Its colossal space is home to the works of famous artists such as Dr. Suess, Michelangelo, Steve Barton, and 2Wild. Among the collections that grace the walkways, you’ll find Alexander Volkov art.
Volkov’s distinct, flawless brushwork and captivating compositions are highly revered in the art community. Some of the artist’s best paintings are of his travels.
San Francisco Morning Bay Bridge depicts the artist’s favorite city bathed in a late afternoon glow. The composition carries depth and proportional symmetry, allowing you to experience the beauty of this stretch of road. In the distance, a faint outline of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge is visible.
The artist laments about how the city is now just a shadow of its former glorious self. Times have changed and things appear bleak, yet a sense of hopefulness pervades. This painting shows us how the city still holds its unique beauty with the promise of a better tomorrow.
It’s a charming piece to revisit for those who are San Franciscan at heart. It is also a wonderful reminder of how the places we visit can leave a lasting impression on our hearts.
For more of Volkov’s riveting work, art lovers can visit the Marcus Ashley Gallery in person or online.
